Pedestal Routine for Core Strength

Yesterday's program recommended a comfy 3 mile run of 65-75% of maximum heart rate, which (for me) is not over 144bpm. I had a hard time finding that pace and ended up doing 83%. Afterwards I tried the pedestal routine below. You get a total workout just trying to keep good form and balance. You may recognize the plank pose from yoga, which in itself, is harder than it looks.

This Pedestal Routine is part of the General Strength routines presented in "Building a Better Running: Building from the Ground Up". This routine is a great example of exercises that target all three dimensions of the core. For more videos visit RunningDVDs.com

Update: After trying out the pedestal routine, I have a new name for it: Planks of Doom. Be warned.
