Boss Man wrote:If you have difficulty doing Planks, assuming you use the forearms and knees variation, not the standard forearms and toes position, then obviously try something else instead.
Boss Man wrote:There's plenty of exercises for Abs apart from Crucnhes and Planks.
Reverse Crunches, Roman Chairs, Leg Raises, including Swiss Ball Leg Raises, V Crunches, Sit-ups with your feet planted under something, Cable Crunches, Side bends for Obliques, although they would be an additional thing, not a main exercise. Bicycle Crunches as well, Swiss Ball Crunches, Sit ups with a twist, including a disc or medicine ball, Punch sit-ups, Leg Lifts and Side Crunches as well.
The Abs will also get targeted with things like Cleans, Deadlifts and Squats etc.

Have fun at the zoo tomorrow!

The main thing with the workouts is, you're trying to schedule something in when you can. This is proactive and it's a case of take it each day at a time and see if your plans are workable or need modifying.
Good for you though, being more proactive and thinking more about it. You made some decent progress in the past few weeks and capitalising on it is a kay part of your future as well as your studies.
I like what I am seeing from you, because you are being more forward thinking, and assessing things more positively, than may have been the case preciously.
Keep on pushing and keep on believing, because you ARE worth it.
