MOVE OF THE WEEK: Plank Dumbbell Tricep Extension. Carve out a strong defined core and upper body with this effective and efficient move! The basic plank is an awesome move all by itself - it works the abs, back, shoulders, delts, pecs, glutes, quads, and calves! Add in a weighted tricep extension and you’re adding more challenge to those muscles with the weight and the balance component, and now you’ve also got yourself an awesome extra tricep challenge. Add this move into your next workout. Do 3 sets of 12 reps (each side). Note video is sped up.

Technique:

1) Begin in plank position with your hands holding a set of dumbbells and your wrists directly under your shoulders. 
2) Raise your right are up, keeping it straight and close to your side, slight pause at the top and then slowly lower your arm back down, working against gravity.
3) Repeat with the opposite arm. That’s one rep.

Tips. Keep your core tight and contract your glutes through the entire movement. Be sure to keep your shoulder blades down and back (rather than letting your shoulders creep up toward your ears). If you need more stability, widen your legs.

MOVE OF THE WEEK: PLANK (in honor of our 30 Day Plank Challenge)

Sometimes the simplest of movements result in the greatest gains to your fitness.  This is certainly the case with planks. A plank may look easy at first, but this is deceiving. Holding a proper plank position takes strength and endurance in your abs, back, and quads.

The plank is one of the most effective exercises for core conditioning, as it engages multiple muscle groups simultaneously.  Not only does it give you a killer core, but it also works your glutes and hamstrings, supports proper posture, reduces back-pain, and improves flexibility and balance.

Visit my FB page for detailed instructions on how to do a proper plank, as well as for modifications.
