Start 2018 off right by strengthening your core muscles, improving your posture, reducing back pain, and bettering your balance.
Take a #30DayPlankChallenge to start your year off on the right foot! (Provided there are no reasons you can’t participate, e.g., doctor said, “Don’t plank.”)
We’ve posted a suggested plan, and you can find others on our Facebook page or online. The idea is to improve your fitness and health. Be kind to yourself. If you have any questions or concerns, please ask doctor before beginning this challenge. For most of us, this will be encouragement to increase our activity levels after the holiday season.
Proper plank form will reduce the chance of injury and likely improve your results. You can find tips here.
Essentially, keep your core and leg muscles engaged; keep your bum aligned — not sagging to the floor and not up in the air; look at the floor to maintain a neutral spine; stack your shoulders, elbows, and wrists (depending on which version of the plank you choose.)

Remember: If you are at all concerned about taking this challenge, ask Doctor before starting the challenge. This is a suggestion. Go at your own pace and celebrate your gains. If you feel pain, faint, etc while performing the movement, please stop and reassess.
Here is additional information about the items on the April calendar.
This month’s wellness talk will be held April 8 at 7:30 p.m. Our topic is What you need to know about Sports Related Injuries.
As the weather heats up, so does our activity. And with all that activity, comes increased chances for sports-related injuries.
Dr. Duddey will address the following:
WHAT TO DO IMMEDIATELY
How you respond to an injury initially is important. Learn what you need to do before you see us.
WHAT TO DO IN RECOVERY
Recovery is work. We’ll let you know what to do in recovery to get your back to your sport or activity as soon as possible.
HOW TO CARE FOR SORE MUSCLES AND JOINTS
When you’re working out, muscles are building and feel tight. Yes, you may be flexible, but your muscles need some care. We’ll tell you how to take care of your aching body.
Be sure to RSVP here or call 714-377-0078 to reserve your spot.
