Plank Circuit Challenge - ARE YOU IN?

Plank Circuit Challenge - ARE YOU IN?

Many of you Team FFD members that are on our private members only Facebook group may have seen the plank video Michelle and I did yesterday. I wanted to highlight a few things about my favorite core exercise and challenge you to try the plank circuit.

A Few Reasons Why We Plank?

  • Stronger core/back
  • Tones tummy
  • Engages full body
  • Improves posture and balance
  • NO EQUIPMENT NEEDED = NO EXCUSES

How To Do A Proper Plank:

  • Pull in your bellybutton (contract abdominals)
  • Hold your elbows directly under your shoulders and place your wrists in line with your elbows
  • Hold your chin close to your neck
  • DO NOT hold your breath
  • Keep body in line - do not drop shoulders, arch back or lower hips

Plank Circuit Challenge:

Complete circuit below with no rest between each plank variation. Repeat circuit three times, rest one minute between rounds. Complete plank challenge 3 times per week. 

  • 10-15 seconds standard plank position
  • 10-15 seconds alternating leg lifts (squeeze the buns)
  • 10-15 seconds hip dips (touch hips to floor - side to side)
  • 10-15 seconds up-downs (alternate going from forearms to palms)
