Exercise of the Week

Plank Variation

This week I’ve got a variation of the front plank for you to try out.  It’s a very simple adjustment, but one that can have your triceps burning in no time.  Simple take one hand and place it flat on the ground as if you are at the bottom of a pushup position.  Hold your elbow in tight to your ribcage, and keep it as close to 90 degrees as possible.  Switch arms every 15-20 seconds.  Holding this 90 degree angle will really get your triceps going, adding another dimension to an already great exercise.
