Who would be interested in a little more core work integrated into the basic simplefit workouts?
I see allot of people add some core work would this type of addition interest anyone?
example based on level 1
5 rounds for time
Hang from the bar and hold an l position with you body, if this is not possible bend your knees.
Hold you body in a straight line weight on elbows and toes. To add intensity slide elbows forward.
Let me know what you thinkMay 6, 2007 at 10:11 pm #109015Robert DeWittParticipant

both are awesome. good stuff, keep it comin.May 7, 2007 at 1:07 pm #109017dgkimptonParticipant More variations are only a good thing, why not go for day 5,6,7 as some of these variations?
Also, more introductory guides (with pics) of how to do these moves (all of them) would be most appreciated – it’s hard to know if one is doing it right when one is unsure what one should be doing…May 7, 2007 at 4:30 pm #109018coineParticipant
How do you do planks “for time”? How long are you supposed to stay in that position?May 7, 2007 at 6:51 pm #109019scorxnParticipant On the alt workouts, he’s saying multiply the rep count times 3 seconds. So in the L1 example here, I believe it would be holding 45 seconds per round.May 7, 2007 at 10:35 pm #109020samjacksonParticipant I’ve been doing my planks on a stability ball, 1 minute 4X, arms extended and locked out. Its suprising how long a minute can last when I’m doing it. Ssolid core workout for sure. Another variation, plank on stability ball, on elbows, twist left/right 25X/4XMay 7, 2007 at 10:50 pm #109021 Ok so try them out and let me know if you people want them included in the program.

Right, just trying to get a feel for what works for people so any feedback is appreciated. I am leaning towards 30 seconds for beginners and 3 min for advanced and scaling based on that, If they are included at all.

this is a great idea. I was thinking about alternating days for core work and doing it on my cardio days, but this would be a very nice challenge to throw in there. Gonna take me a while to get the grip up to speed I think for the L’s and the pullups but I need that anyway.
