The Plank Challenge
Lie on the floor with elbows directly beneath your shoulders (you may also use straight arms) and legs fully extended. Raise your torso into the air until it makes a straight line from your shoulders to your ankles. Tighten your stomach, squeeze your butt and hold this position for the desired amount of time.
1st day - do a plank for 30 seconds
2nd day to 31st day - add 5 seconds each day
In one month you will be doing a 3 minute plank.
- Do not allow your back to round.
- Do not allow your hips to drop or sag.
- Press your elbows into the floor and squeeze your glutes to maximize stability.
