30 Day Plank Challenge

One of my listeners, Danielle Schooler of Burlington, put out a challenge on Facebook and I accepted!  

It's the 30 Day Plank Challenge!  

This graphic outlines how you get started and what to do everyday.  Don't worry if you haven't started yet, just start from Day 1 and move as the days pass!  


 

So, I started that night.  It was two nights ago.  Let me preface this by saying, I do not work out on a regular basis.  So this is couch to planking for me!  It's a starting point, and I'm hoping to add squats and other things to this as time goes along.  

This is for someone who is going from ZERO to exercising!  

Yes, I teach line dancing and dance A LOT, take the stairs everyday, go for long walks, but I don't focus my energy specifically on exercise.  

I challenge you to try it with me.  It only takes 20 seconds to start!  You can so do this!  And, if we hold each other accountable and check in everyday to see if we've done our "planks", I think we can get to the end of this month and beyond healthier and happier!  

I even asked my FBP if he would do this with me, and he said yes!  Challenge your entire family to get involved!  Have the kids make a contest out of it to see who can hold their plank the longest.   

Here's my plank last night: 



I'm a beginner here, so my form is not perfect.  I need to put my feet closer together, and it looks like I need to drop my shoulders a bit.  But like I said, this is just the start!  

The first 20 seconds were a little tough, but it wasn't outrageously tough.  My core is weak, but I want to make it strong!

Will you do this with me?  


30 Day Plank Challenge!  Let's go y'all!
