Day 4 done: 30 seconds of regular and side planks.

Kind of, but not exactly. In classical Locust, the idea is to lift your legs as high as you can, while laying down and facing the floor. A popular variation prescribes lifting both chest and legs off the floor. In any way, it is a backbend. The plank position that I was describing calls for a flat spine, so the foot that you lift off the floor just hovers a few inches above the ground. I hope I explained it okay.

I like to elevate my legs on a bench, elbows close, legs crossed (alternate). After doing it this way, a feet on the floor plank seems easier.

The Cat keeps trying to stick her tail in my nose during the plank. That's love.

True. Planks seem harder than pushups. Pushups use momentum. Planking is just holding it in one position. I start shaking doing planks long before I do doing pushups.

Once you get a decent 4 point plank down......try 3 pointers where you only have 3 points of conact and rotate through the different points of contact (i.e. Both hands left foot, right hand both feet, etc). Then try 2 point planks...opposite hand and foot. A goal to shoot for is 30 secs of a 2 point plank....and then switch to the opposite side.

Planks are no joke. I was really surprised how well they work. What's weird is that it seems to work totally different areas than weighted an stuff.
