    Planks and carpet burn

    Primal Fuel
    Was pleasantly surprised when going primal cleared up the keratosis around my elbows. However, the downside of that is that I'm now getting carpet burns on those same elbows from doing planks. I find the wooden floor too hard for planks - maybe I need to harden up.

    Anyone else experienced this? Solutions?

    How are you get carpet burns on your elbows?
    Normally you don't move when you do planks, or maybe I'm doing them wrong.

    Not sure. Certainly not intending to move. Maybe just pressure

    yep I can kind've sympathise, did them on one of those sandy, synthetic tennis courts the other night and kind've had the same thing.
    I think with the amount of pressure, any small sliding movement will irritate your elbows/forearms.
    Just use a yoga mat if you're at home, problem solved

    same here (rug burns on elbows from doing stationary planks on gym carpet).
    if you do not have access to gym mats, use a couple mouse pads. or one
    mouse pad cut in half.

    I like to do them on nails, strengthens the elbows and keeps the mind off my core.

    (but seriously don't try this)

    It's OK, I'm not American. I won't sue you for making a joke
