I’m SO excited to roll out this quick and effective mini-challenge! Today is Day 1 of My 10-Day Plank Challenge, so make sure you follow along on my Facebook page, where each day I will show you a new plank variation to try out. We’ll also feature some right here as well – starting with the standard plank, the Low Hover Plank.
I am rolling out this mini-challenge because the plank is one of the BEST exercises that you can do for your core! It builds isometric strength to target your abs and sculpt your waistline and your back. If you like these type of challenges, sign up for your 7-day free trial of my LifeFit 360 Plan, which includes a variety of challenges – including my 10-Week Whole Body Plan!
Today will we will focus on the Low Hover Plank. Your goal today is to hold the plank for 1 MINUTE. You can take breaks if you need to and then get right back in the plank.
Here’s how to do it right:
On your forearms and toes, make sure your elbows are directly over your shoulders. Your body should form a straight line from your head to your feet. Here’s your move–engage and tighten your core by pulling your abs UP toward your spine. Then try and hold it there for one full minute, taking good, full breaths!
For those of you just starting out, go to your knees instead of your toes and then over time you can gradually challenge yourself to build up to your toes. Belly button in, YOU CAN DO IT!
