I've been doing the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred for 2 weeks and decided this week I would move up to Level 2. I'm having difficulty with all the plank position exercises (and there are a lot of them!) It's my wrists that keep giving out - my abs and legs and shoulders are okay, but my wrists are burning! Does anyone have any suggestions to help with this? Are there any good modifications I could do to avoid the wrist pain?<br><br>
Thanks.<br><br>

I have the same problem. A friend of mine recommended getting those support things people use for doing push ups (<a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FNET-Padded-Push-Up-Bars%2Fdp%2FB001U0DYBG" target="_blank">like this</a> ). She said it really helped.

I can't remember the moves as well as I should since it was just a few months ago, but can you modify some by going into a lower plank on your forearms? I remember loving level 2 by the end, definitely my favorite!

I agree with the pps. In addition, make sure you are using your arms, shoulders, back and ab muscles to support your body weight as oppose to carrying it in your wrists.
