Common Problems To One Of My Favorite Boot Camp Exercises

If I were to ask you to think really hard about what my favorite boot camp exercise is, what do you think it would be?

Some may say push-ups and you’d be close.

Some may say anything inducing pain…and you’d be close!

But when I say “favorite”, I don’t mean the one that makes me smile the most because it makes you work the hardest…

…When I say “favorite”, I’m meaning more along the lines of which exercise (or variation) I like to use most often.

Does that help?

If you guessed the Plank, you’d be right.

I have a number of variations I use in boot camp including Planks, Side Planks, Push-up Planks, Plank Extensions, etc., etc., etc.

I LOVE Planks!

I love them because they flat out work.

They are one of the best stomach exercises and are necessary in building a strong, stable core – which goes far beyond losing stomach fat and getting a nicer figure.

However, there is a big problem with Planks and that is most people do them incorrectly.

Even if you think you’re doing them perfectly, your form will suffer the more fatigued you are…or the less you pay attention to form.

I’m not even immune to letting my form get a bit out of whack!

There are a number of common problems I see every day in boot camp and I made a quick video demonstrating what those problems are and how to fix them.

That’s all I have for today!

Exercise safe and I’ll talk to you soon.

And remember…

Be a superhero today!

P.S. – A couple of weeks ago I threw an exercise into a boot camp workout called “The Dive Bomber.”  It’s a heck of a little exercise, but the more people I told about it, the more questions I received on how to do it…so I made a video!
