A new month and a new fitness challenge. How are you at planking? It’s time to work on that core and make April your Fab Abs month. This little challenge is by no means meant to replace your regular fitness regime but it is an additional challenge to add to your own workouts.
Take a picture on your phone and get stuck in each day. It won’t take long – add it to the end of your gym routine, do it after your afternoon walk or even during the add break of your favourite TV show. Day one starts Friday with a 25 second plank hold. That doable right? Work up towards your goal over the next 30 days and before you know it you’ll be at 1 minute 30 seconds. Are you in?
Tips for performing a plank:
1. Place the forearms on the ground with the elbows aligned below the shoulders, and arms parallel to the body at about shoulder-width distance.
2. Ground the toes into the floor and squeeze the glutes to stabilize the body. Concentrate on tightening your tummy.
