Weathers getting colder and you want a new goal to keep up your fitness through the holidays so how about a challenge? If there is one exercise for your core that you really should do it would be the plank. My friend Donna passed on a plank challenge she was starting and as I looked at it and I thought two things: it started off kind of easy (especially for her) and second, I feel the side plank is just as important than the front plank…and harder to hold! So I came up with my own version and added in the side planks. If you stick with this it will help taper the waist line, can improve posture, help if you have low back pain (be sure to look for my follow up post on perfecting form) and help you with every other activity or sport you do.
Here’s the program:
If you are advanced do 2-3 sets.
If you are new after getting the ok from your doctor do one set and modify by bending your knees. As long as your core including hips are up off the floor you’ll be working!
This is what they look like:
Also be sure to keep with your back exercises like superman’s or reverse planks through out this challenge that way you have the corset like effect happening.
Have a great weekend!
