A couple weeks ago in my usual Saturday morning yoga class, my abs got a not so usual burn that they never saw coming! They hurt-so-good for the next couple days and I immediately knew I needed to share this with you all.
As I started to do some searching, I found that this has not only been used in the plank challenge that I did, but others have used it for push-ups, squats, hip bridges, lunges, pretty much anything!
So how does it work?
You start in a low plank, then every time the lyrics say “bring sally up,” you move into a high plank, and every time the lyrics say “bring sally down,” you return to that low plank again.
Now, keep in mind, this is over 3 minutes, so while tempting to stay on your toes the whole time, if you can’t, just drop to your knees and continue. You’ll still feel the burn and can work your way up to the whole song.
The below video I found shows this challenge perfectly!
Are you up for the challenge?

I’m off to my favorite saturday morning yoga class where this is the instructor’s go to move. Except instead of holding plank during the verses, we do dolphin planks. freaking love it!

SO challenging but such a great burn to the core, for sure!
I did a 30 day plank challenge a little while back and worked my way up to a 5 minute plank (so hard!) I could do to try out another plank challenge. Thanks for the idea! 🙂

I love this! I might have to try it!
Yes I love this move! You can really feel the burn!
I did the Sally Up Challenge but with push ups with my clients on Wednesday….they don’t like me much anymore 😛
We do these style exercises in a core class and they work magic. Did you see the guy that was competing for the world record in planking? He lasted like some 6 or 8 hours!!!! Crazy!
Have a great weekend Katie! 🙂
