whenever i do a full plank, the only parts of my body that pain is the heels of my hands.. because of my body weight.. i suspect i am doing something wrong.. ??

You could try an elbow plank to reduce the pressure

yeah elbow plank is easier for me.. but my question is whether m doing the full plank correctly..
05 Mar
Tough to say virtually, but hands should be under shoulders. Can you do pushups without pain?

OK maybe that's the problem.. i keep my hands 'in front of' my shoulders.. I'll try it out.. thanks!

No you are not you just have the weight of your self. But you have to have your legs to gether and your back striat and arms at solder with spread apart. Your hand are suppost to hurt until you get use to it.

Try elbow planks, when you do a pushup, use parallets, i use them to be easier on my wrists.

I never liked doing bent wrist push ups, I do them on my fists, or use handles that lift me a few extra inches off the ground. Try it for your planks too and see if it helps.

Or use dumbbells if you have any.

that's a good idea!
