Yet Another Reason Why Ashtanga Yoga Rocks

It's a great Ab work-out: http://www.thepostgame.com/blog/training-day/201102/no-more-crunches-abs-olutely<

According to this article, doing plank is a better ab work-out then doing crunches. If you've ever done an Ashtanga practice, you'd know that in the course of the practice we do a lot of Chaturanga Dandasanas (i.e., planks).


  1. I was just reading about that pose in a Yoga Mag last night. It looks challenging. My upperbody strength sucks so I think this pose would get me all over.

  2. Just so you know, you can start out doing plank with your knees on the ground until you build up enough upper body and core strength to do full plank.
