Remember a few days back when I mentioned in a blog post survey that my dream workout would be one with Jen from Peanut Butter Runner? Well, I think this is as close as I’m gonna get for now; Charlotte is quite a ways from Northern California, le sigh.
What I mean is that Jen’s first book was published this month (#2 is already in the works — isn’t she such a rockstar!?). Jen kindly offered to send me a copy of her book to review. Little did she know, she’s one my fitness idols. Yes, please, and thank you!
101 Plank Exercises for a Strong Core, Killer Abs–And a Killer Body
I love to plank and incorporate them into nearly every single workout, sometimes intentionally, unless I am just going for a run. Some of my favorite planks include: plyometric frog jumps, renegade rows, and stability ball push-ups/ab tucks.
Have you tried my 10-minute Plank + Push-up Workout?
Jen’s book includes 101 plank versions – from your basic position to those including weights and equipment. The photos show perfect form, and the clear, concise descriptions include modifications for each exercise. The book also includes ten 5-minute workouts incorporating several planks variations.
Flipping through the pages, I can’t help but crave a strong, solid core for summer.
