Intermediate planks for those who cannot get on the floor

FRUGAL FIT TIP TUESDAY






I have a few older clients who can't get on the floor because it's hard them to get back up. I do these modified planks that are excellent for the core.
However, they have progressed past the above plank because they can hold this position for longer than a minute.  I will share with you some of the advanced planks I'm having them do.


Mountain climbers


Starting position: Make sure your elbows are aligned with your shoulders. Keep your body straight from your head to your glutes.  Press your ab to your spine and don't hold your breath.  



Bring your knee towards your elbow and return your foot to the starting position and repeat with the opposite leg. Start with 15 seconds and work your way up to performing mountain climbers for one minute.


In and out planks


Starting position: Remember to keep the elbows aligned with your shoulders.


Take your left or right leg out to the side and bring it back in and do the same thing with the opposite leg.  Your step does not have to be that wide; you want to keep your body in perfect alignment.  Start with doing this for 15 seconds and work your way up to one minute.


Twisting plank



Starting position: Keep your abs tight so you won't sag in the middle and drop your hip area to the floor.



Bring your left leg towards your right elbow and then your right leg towards your left elbow. Start with 15 seconds and then work your way up to one minute or longer.


These exercises are also good for doing outdoors on a bench, especially if do not want to get on the ground.  Here is the link to the first article in the plank series:http://thefrugalexerciser.blogspot.com/2012/09/planks-for-everyone.html

QUICK TIP: IT MAY BE TIME TO INCREASE YOUR DUMBBELL SIZE

You've stuck to your strength-training routine and have memorized every workout in your favorite exercise DVD. You've probably noticed changes in your body, including those uber-toned arms that you never thought you'd have. Now that you're getting stronger, here's a reminder that you may be ready to increase the weight of your dumbbells.

The right dumbbell weight for you will fatigue your muscles in eight to 12 reps — meaning you feel a burning sensation and feel like you can't lift your arm anymore. If you've been working out regularly, chances are your muscles have gotten stronger, so lifting the same weights that you used when you started strength training will be easier than it was when you started, and it will take longer for your muscles to fatigue.

So don't be afraid to step up your weights. You won't bulk up, but you will be able to work out more efficiently. If you're just starting out, here's a chart of typical dumbbell weights by exercise for beginners.
