Weekly Wednesday Workout: Spiderman Planks

This week we focus on our abs!!

httpv://youtu.be/dvAm7Gw0klA

I am not a fan of the planks, but I can’t deny how effective they are for flattening the tummy! We have done several planks in this series before but these are special because my trainer makes me do these more often than not. What I like about these is that there is an oblique element added. Plus you might actually feel a bit like spiderman when you do them. 🙂

Have you ever tried Spiderman Planks?

That’s a great addition to the standard plank which is brutally effective on it’s own. I plan on giving this a try. Thanks!

I have to say that I actually love planks. I prefer them to crunches any day! In fact, I did “walking” planks yesterday and I have the bare skin on my elbows to prove it. Ouch!!
Spidermans are great – and add in those obliques, like you pointed out. Painful but effective 🙂

ouch!! My trainer had me do those up down planks…on the fake grass in the gym…I had to beg him for a mat–the PAIN!

Sad face, as to this is why I can’t seem to get my belly flat enough, because I just can’t do these types of exercises with my lower back. I am thankful just for the fact that each day I am holding steady and not having any relapses, but still wish I could do more exercises like these to help flatten my tummy a bit more. Thanks for sharing though and Happy Wednesday now 😉

Girl, there is something about pregnancy (especially multiple!) that changes our tummies forever!

Planks are one of the few ab exercises still recommended for me. I hate them!! Haha.

These are in a couple of DVDs that I own. I don’t do those DVDs very often. LOL

Planks are definitely bittersweet. Hate them when I’m doing them, but love the results. This one looks super hard, but does have that fun superhero aspect to it. Maybe I can get the almost-5 year old to do them with me?
