PLANK TO STAND
The exercise that makes me scream & cry.
Use without weights at first then start off with 5lb Dumbbells and gradually increase weight as you feel comfortable.
I'm using 20lb weights. When your foot lands in front be sure it lands between your hands (not in back or front). Stand up straight at the top.
Do 12 reps each leg. Do all 12 on one leg before switching.
Then stand up straight on the supporting leg!
Kick leg up as far as you are able.
