Day Twenty-Three~ Core Dynamics...not a fan

Today was a new DVD, called Core Dynamics.  It was only twenty minutes long and consisted of lots of different plank-type exercises and a variety of sit-ups.  I'm on the fence with this one.  I think I'm just so bored with doing planks pretty much every workout day, and it was feeling like an arm/shoulder workout more then anything.  My muscles are sore/tender and need some time to just heal.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do.  I want to stick with this program just to say I actually completed it, but I feel that maybe by just doing the traditional weightlifting routine I will better my body.  Hit a muscle group hard, leave that group alone for two days, and come back to it.  I don't feel like my muscles are getting a break of any kind.  We did more squats today, which is three days in a row now.  I don't know what to do...

On a side note, this is my new favorite move for sure :)

That type of positioning on side planks is not normally a reccomendable thing, so what makes it different placing the hand on a dumbbell; as normally you'd position on the forearm, for more stability and to reduce the strain on the wrist the pictured positioning could potentially cause.

Take care and best wishes.

this is true and there are a few moves in this I question. With all the planks being done with a straight arm, I feel like my wrists and shoulders are not okay. I like this move because I can do it and it looks cool LOL
