The key to a strong core is control and total involvement of all your muscles not just the ones you think about being your “six-pack” What is the biggest excuse that I hear from my clients on why they haven’t done anything active since the last time I saw them? “I don’t have the time.” I call shenanigans... this is a quick workout that you can do anytime, anywhere (don’t challenge me I have seriously done plank in a library studying for finals because I was getting cabin fever, I’m super cool like that?!).
Hold each for as long as you can and you have yourself at least something that you did for you! Or if you have 5 minutes on your hands do my full plank series!
Enjoy what you do!
Traditional plank: goal 30 seconds
Float one foot back - 3-legged plank: goal 30 seconds
Draw knee into your forehead: goal 15 seconds
Push back into that 3-legged plank: goal 30 seconds
Cross the knee over to opposite elbow: goal 15 seconds
Drop down to a dolphin plank or low plank: goal 30 seconds
And you know you have to do it on the other side too right?
Enjoy!!!! :) Keep planking you crazy kids!
