30 Day Mommyland Plank Challenge

31 Jan

Continuing with our fitness challenges we’re going to work our entire body by doing 30 days of planks!

Tomorrow we’ll start with a 20 second plank and by the beginning of March we’ll be planking for five minutes. FIVE MINUTES!!!

We CAN do this!

Planks are great for your core but they are also great for your glutes and hamstrings and they help with flexibility, balance and posture too.

If you’re not sure how to do a proper plank I’ve prepared this handy dandy image for you.

30 Day Plank Challenge

Just like last month’s 30 Day Squat Challenge I’ve taken the liberty of creating a printable calendar so you can keep track of all your hard work. Each day you’ll see how long (in seconds) you need to plank for and I will also be posting the day’s workout on the Mommyland Facebook page each day at 6AM eastern.

All you need to do is click on the calendar above and print the PDF.

If you’re an iPhone user you may have noticed that there are no seconds on the timer. I’ve found a good timer app that works in hours, minutes and seconds. Timer+ will give you a good countdown for your planks.

Last month I told you you could break your squats up throughout the day, this month I want you to do your planks in their entirety each day, don’t break them up into smaller bits and pieces.

I know it sounds daunting once you get past to two minute mark but you can do it! We’re going to gradually work up to our final goal of five minutes so we’ll be getting a little stronger everyday.

Good luck and keep in touch to let me know how you’re doing.
