Another 30 seconds and you can stop…insert facial grimace here! I found a new activity to participate in and it only takes minutes a day and you’re almost laying down to do it! Ahahaha…ever do a plank? Let me tell you, it’s nothing like laying down! You read the posts on Twitter and FB pages and think pfft, 3 minutes holding a plank, how hard is that. Let me just do this…HA. HA. HA. Ummm, remove pfft here! IT IS HARD! I was able to hold the plank for:
I am going to have
rock hard sore abs by the weekend Crunches be gone, there’s a new kid in town I have long given up the thought that crunches are the way to flat ter abs and have engaged in moves that will stabilize my core and back. This is one more move to fit in daily and of course I will tweet it to #plankaday…I mean really, why plank if you’re not telling the world you’re doing it! I kid! (sort of…) haha
There are many modifications and variations to planks and there was that whole ‘planking’ movement…is that still going on? I tend to be a little behind the trends :p
There are side planks, regular planks, planks with leg lifts, planks with arm raises, planks on stability balls, planks with legs elavated…plank, plank, plank! I’m exhausted thinking about a plank with leg raise!
Now your challenge for the week is to work on increasing your plank time incrementally each day. Set a stopwatch…download Gymboss app, egg timer, whatever and get planking!
