You might have noticed a new icon on the right hand side, the one that reads “Tough As Nails”. Now, what’s this all about? Today marks the start of the PLANKS #Fitblog Challenge.
As we are supposed to design our own plan, that we will follow for the next six weeks, here’s what I’m going to do:
- I will work on my planks 3 times a week (Mon, Wed, Fri)
- Each time I will try to increase my time by 10 seconds
- In my initial test I could hold the plank for 1 min
- My end goal is 4 minutes
Day one was already a success, I held the plank for 1:10 minutes! Let’s see if I can keep up with my plan.
Note: I’m not a fitness professional, so I clearly don’t know what I’m talking about. But you can find some great tips, given by a real expert, over at Morgan’s blog Life After Bagels!
