Still attempting to make this body sexy…
So it’s been a few weeks since I started my fitness routine, sorry I didn’t post more updates.
But recently I’ve been hearing about this 30 day plank challenge ; and I’ve seen some pretty good results. A know all too well about the “front leaning rest position” all too well. 🙄 Thanks to an alphabetical battle buddy in BCT.
I’ve decided to do less upper body and core training during this time so I can see if this challenge will work for me.
So basically the 28 plank challenge is exactly what it reads. A month of daily planking with 2 rest days. For those who don’t kno what planking is , in layman’s terms; it’s holding still in the push up position engaging your core muscles. Keeping your back straight.
Beginners usually plank anywhere from 10-30 seconds at a time. It can be quite a stretch to plank for a full 60 seconds if you have a weak core.
The thing I love most about core and ab exercises is they can literally be done daily with out the high risk of tearing and hyperflexion. Yeah you’ll get sore but no pain no gain. The interesting thing about planking to me is the vast amounts of muscle groups it targets and works on uses virtually no movement and provides resistance by using your own body weight.
Here’s to the next 28 days of daily planking.
Feel free to try this challenge with me 😎
