  1. Can you settle an argument I had with my brother? Is it almost as good to do the plank on your elbows if you have a tremor for example? It's still considered a plank?

  2. You seem to reply to literally every comment, even the bad ones.
    I already knew how to plank, but I enjoyed your video nevertheless, thank you =)

  3. I'm really skinny and 16 years old, should I be doing this?
    As in it won't lead to stuff like back problems right
