Yoga and Pilates Planks: Set Two (Off The Floor)

Who said it has to be done on a floor?

Quick Note
If you have sweaty hands or your hands keep slipping
try using weight gloves, a door way, or a chair to hold on to.

If you prefer the floor, then watch Set Three!

Please consult your medical doctor before starting this
or any other fitness program

How Long Do You Hold A Plank?

Try holding a plank for 30 seconds
Take a break
Then come back and do another 30 seconds

Its best to do a one minute plank 
Three times a week
Using it with part of your toning exercises

What is your Maximum Hold Time?

3 Minutes is your maximum hold time
If 3 minutes is too easy then you should 
move on to the next harder level
(See Other Vlogs on advanced planks)

When is the best time to do them?

I encourage my students and clients to 
hold planks each food commercial
Its a great way to add a small bit of toning
Plus it keeps you from running up the stairs 
or out the door for a snack!
