It's wall planks for me. Can't get on the floor because of vertigo and knees. But I CAN do wall planks or kitchen counter ones.

We did so many planks at power yoga last night, and today I served Pilates class! My core is getting a darn good workout this week!

If you haven't worked your core in at least 24 hours, let's get to it. According to health.harvard.edu....

"Think of your core muscles as the sturdy central link in a chain connecting your upper and lower body. Whether you're hitting a tennis ball or mopping the floor, the necessary motions either originate in your core, or move through it.

No matter where motion starts, it ripples upward and downward to adjoining links of the chain. Thus, weak or inflexible core muscles can impair how well your arms and legs function."

Planks are great for working the entire core. Pick your level...
