New Year Weight Loss Challenge Day 9: Let's Plank!

Welcome to Day 9 of the New Year Weight Loss Challenge!

Let's Plank!
Yesterday we talked about posture and briefly touched on tummy tightening. Today is all about abs and building core strength.

There are numerous ab exercises you can do to tone and build your abs and core strength. Today we are going to focus on planks. Planks are considered one of the best exercises for acheiving these results. Planks work the abs, back and core stabilizer muscles. Plus all you need is a floor and a mat or towel, no equipment or gym membership necessary!

Basic Front Plank

Have you ever done planks? If not, will you?
What exercises do you incorporate in your workouts to strengthen your abs and core?
How often do you work on your core?

I can do planks, but I don't like them.  I don't like ab exercises.  Why?  My abs are super week.  I prefer reclined chest lifts and bicycle.
