And when done the right way, they not only fire up your core, but muscles in your shoulders and legs too. With that said, there is some room for error when it comes to getting the biggest bang for your buck—improper form and timing can mess with its benefits. So how do you actually do a proper plank—and how long should you

Before we talk further about mental skills training ask yourself the following questions: Do you have trouble staying motivated?Do you struggle with your confidence or your belief in yourself?Do you find it

Whether you’re planning to run a 5K, 10K, half marathon, or marathon, these expert-backed rules will keep you fit and injury-free.
