Has everyone been doing their plank-a-day for Abs in April?

Anyway, I have stayed consistent with my planks everyday and despite feeling like I could skip them on Sunday after we did a LOT of ab work and planks in hot yoga, I decided I was going to get them in anyway. And I did.


All planks this week have been with my arms straight (vs. on my elbows) as I do find it interesting to compare how I do between the two…maybe I’ll do elbow planks this week and switch back and forth week to week?…options, we’ll see!

How were your planks this week?

Are you already noticing a difference?

    Gah, I need to get back to planking! Have you seen the “Plank Police” on Twitter? You should look up that account … they totally will get on you for not getting in your planking if you consistently use the #plankaday hashtag.

      YES! And they keep getting me! So I got a little snarky with them the other day…really, they just need to come to my weekly check-in on Tuesdays and see I haven’t missed a freaking day yet…
