I am feeling a plank challenge coming on…
Time to revisit the One Hour Plank!
5 minutes of plank variations (broken into multiple, short(ish) sets, this part is really important, there’s no way I’m holding plank for 5 straight minutes)
Who: me! you! your best friend! her boy-friend! your momma! my aunt!
Why: plank works the entire body, is easy to do anywhere (like behind my desk when at the office later than expected!), and is easily modified to work with weakness, issues, and different fitness levels
When: we’ve got 4 weeks until Thanksgiving which sounds like a nice, pre/between-holidays timeline
How Long: I’m shooting for the full 5 minutes, 3 times a week, because that feels like the right amount of challenge to me but please, decide for yourself what is an attainable, healthy, challenging goal for you
Here’s my YouTube workout for Day 1’s variation, the video takes you through 90 seconds so you can repeat 2 or 3 times and fill in with plan ol’ high or low planks if you want to do 5 minutes.
I highly encourage bragging/boasting/encouraging others, the idea is that we remind and push each other to get this little mini-workout in three times a week for the next month.
And now, I will plank.
Happy Halloween! Hope your costume is more together than mine!
