Measurements and day 1 completed. I start shaking within 10 seconds on the plank! Pathetic!
My jeans are a pair that I haven't worn since after I had my first baby (she's now 15!). It's the only old thing I kept since I really liked them. Surprisingly I could get them on, but I could barely zip them and everything in my tummy got pushed up and over and I could hardly breathe!
Momof4 please don't get discouraged. That's about where I was when I started. Heck my arms hurt so bad when I started that they kept giving out. I had to first strengthen them then move on to the core.
Bambi and I both had trouble with Plank for a minute, and Derrick told us to do what we could in the proper form, then drop to our knees for the remainder of the time. That helped.
It took me 3 weeks to hold for a minute. Really. I haven't been doing it long. Now I'm trying to complete both cycles of adding the toe taps and heel taps in.
I think those jeans sound like a good test pair
I slacked for a few days. I started back yesterday. I could see the damage it did with my progress. Shame on me. Be careful on taking more than a day or two off.
