Exercise – effing plank, effing bridge, Elliptical, modified pull ups.

Calories – 180 ish at the gym, more at home and weekend stuff.

I was all proud of myself for doing a round of ab work/crunches etc and then I read Deb Roby’s Useless Exercises Part 1 and sighed. I hate planks, but she assures me that everyone hates either the plank or the bridge (for her it is the bridge) but do it for a good core. Okay fine. After the porch incident, I clearly need to do the work. She hooked me up with video and off I went. No awe inspiring news to share – other than I freaking tried them and did not die or cry.

Deb has more plank variations as well. I just need to recover from my first attempts before I go gettin’ fancy with it 🙂
