Ok 2 lbs off last night which is really disappointing considering how good I was for the last week, and how much exercise I got in.

Hi Sarah,

I see you use a powerplate - I have a home version but dont really use it. Do you find they work and if so could you give me any effective poses?

Thanks very much

Hi Rem

At my gym you can only do them with an instructor, and she has us do many many different exercises on them. The last session I did she had us do reverse plank (or just do a normal plank if you haven't done it regularly with feet on the floor, arms on the plate), push ups with feet on the floor (or on your knees) and arms on the plate. We do squats, lunges, dips, sit ups, and then sit ups where you dip on the left and right to work your obliques. I did my class on thursday and I can STILL feel it today! LOL It's really great, I wish I could afford a machine at home myself. If you need any more just let me know hon!

Afternoon all, running a bit slow today!

Hi steph - thanks for the advice!
Mine was brought on amazon for £175.00 - carl lewis (obviously nowhere near as powerful as the proper ones but hey cant do any harm!)

Can you tell me about the sit up positioning on the plate and also any glut exercises.

Thanks very much

For the bum, lunges and squats as low as you can go. and the position for the squats, facing the back of the machine, holding on and squat as low as you can go (make sure knees not over feet for correct position), hold and then pulse for 10 seconds alternating.

For sit ups, sit with your back to the handle of the plate, roll back as far as you can (without putting your back on the plate) and without it hurting your back, don't go so far down if you have back issues. and hold your arms out in front of you as if you were stretching to grab something, head up. Then roll up slowly and then back. Also if you want to work the obliques, slowly reach both arms over to the left, then back to the centre and then over to the right. You will feel it but it should NOT hurt your back, if so, come up a bit.
