Starting May 1! Challenge yourself to follow this plan and increase your core strength in 30 days with planks, A plank is an isometric hold of the abdominals that strengthens your entire core and works your shoulders too.
HOW TO DO A FOREARM PLANK (pictured below):
Don't let your hips sag too low or go too high. Your head should remain in line with your spine (don't drop or raise your head - keep it neutral). There should be a straight line from your head to your heels.
The 30 days are outlined on the graphic below.
Each day has either a time to hold the plank or indicates a rest day. If you miss a day close to a rest day, just swap those days out.
By the end of the 30 days you will be holding a 1 minute plank. If you can already hold a plank for 1 minute, then double the time on each day. For example, rather than doing 10 seconds on day 1, you would hold the plank for 20 seconds. Continue doubling each day's time and you will be up to a 2 minute plank by the end of the month.
