BB 07/25 : The Bridge: Minutes and minutes of planking


Once Glen Ross got me in touch with the 7 minute plank challenge, I have made it a goal to get better at elbow planks.  I am not going to lie, I have been working on it… and man has it made a difference.  Not quite triming out the ole core, but a big difference in the quantity and quality of my Merkins.  I’m thinking because I am exerting less energy trying to keep my butt and stomach up, I can focus more energy on my chest and back when doing Merkins.
