Hey hey – are you up for a challenge?
Each day in August I’ll post a plank variation with directions on what to do. Get your summer abs and tighten up your core with me! #MTFFplank so I can follow along with you!
Welllll since today is August 1, let’s get started!
DAY 1 #MTFFplank is the high plank.
Form is key to make planks effective. Shoulders over wrists, hips square and in a straight line with your spine. SQUEEZE your belly button to the spine and spread weight evenly through hands and feet. Keep a neutral neck don’t look down or up.
Now how long can you hold it?
× Beginner – If you are new to planks start off with 10 seconds on and off for a minute repeat 3x
× Intermediate try holding 30-45 seconds rest 30-15 secs and repeat 3x
× Advanced try holding for 60 seconds, rest 10 seconds and increase 70 seconds on, 20 seconds rest and 80 seconds on, 30 seconds off and 90 seconds on, yes 4x – you’re advanced right?
× Pro do a max hold – hold til you can’t hold any more!
