👉🏾 What’s the longest you’ve ever held a plank for?
💪🏾⚡ If you’re ready to build a strong core, this week’s challenge will get you on your way. 🙂
It’s the PLANK CHALLENGE! Every day this week, your challenge is to hold a total of LEAST 2 minutes of plank!
💡 Planks help improve your posture and core stability (important for overall strength and injury prevention), but they also help build an overall stronger body. Even your arms, shoulders, glutes, and chest get a workout from planks!
… plus, if you’re new to planking you can modify them for your fitness level!
You can do them from your knees or put your hands on a sturdy platform to take some of the pressure off your muscles and keep perfect form.
⭐ I’ve got lots of fun variations for you to try over the next 7 days. Are you ready?!
✅ Here’s how you’ll do it: Break your planks up into as many sets as you need in order to reach the two-minute mark with proper form. Also, remember to BREATHE!
💪🏾 Monday: Straight-arm plank
💪🏾 Tuesday: Side plank (60 sec each side)
💪🏾 Wednesday: Plank from elbows
💪🏾 Thursday: Straight-arm plank (60 sec), Side plank (30 sec each side)
💪🏾 Friday: Straight-arm plank (60 sec), Plank from elbows (60 sec)
💪🏾 Saturday: Spiderman plank (draw knee toward same-side elbow, switching sides)
💪🏾 Sunday: Straight arm plank (30 sec), Side plank each side (15 sec each), Spiderman plank (30 sec), Plank from elbows (30 sec)
Bonus: Here is a quick 5-Minute Core Workout from our Natural Medicine at Home Masterclass that includes some planks to get you to your daily goal!
