I call it the 'plank-dog', but in the yoga world it is called chataranga. If you can tolerate the weight bearing on your wrists, it is by far the most comprehensive single exercise out there!
|A. Start in downward dog. (You can do this on your elbows.)|
|B. Move smoothly into plank. Keep all of your muscles 'active'.|
|C. Lower your body slowly, keeping elbows in and shoulders stable.|
|D. Come up into cobra maintaining stability and form.|
|The 'plank-dog' is difficult! Try B. and C. from your knees!|
Janet of The Gardner's Cottage asked us what is our perfect accessory. I must say it is my Sergio Gutierez cuff. But I also love my Cartier timepiece and my wedding ring! If you get a chance, post your perfect accessory or, if you don't have a blog, email it to Janet, email@example.com.
