Don't "avoid" your "junk food" or dessert. Just ADD so much healthy stuff -- water, lean protein, fruit & veggies -- that there's less room or desire leftover for food that doesn't support your goals.⠀ pic.twitter.com/51bgSABfvo

Have you tried practicing some “Spider-Man Planks” yet? . . #Repost @plantstoplanks with @get_repost ・・・ Hope you're not tired of planks yet, because I have plenty more coming your way! 😉 @vitalifit_coach is helping demonstrate a little Spiderman Plank action on the @bosu_fitness ball to keep the challenge going. This move is similar to a mountain climber, but instead you drive your knee out toward the same elbow, rotating from the hip. Keep it to just the plank and leg action or ramp it up with a pushup. Remember to keep breathing and lock those core muscles in tight throughout the movement. Do the exercise on the floor or elevate the hands on a stable surface to modify. This is another really great way to work on hip mobility! Beginner: Perform 5 repetitions per leg Intermediate: Perform 8 reps/leg Advanced: Perform 10 reps/leg #plank #planks #plankchallenge #spidermanplank #mobility #fitness #exercise #challenge #motivation #workout #workoutseries #core #coreexercise #coreworkout #bosu #bosuball #plantstoplanks #excellenceinexercise @excellenceinexercise
