Plank A Day

      6 Comments on Plank A Day

Have you heard of the Plank A Day challenge that runs wild on Twitter and the healthy-living community?  Basically the idea is as easy as it’s name: do a plank every day and each day try to last longer than the previous day.  Simple right?

It’s something I heard about for a long time and while I often do planks as part of my core strengthening workouts, I didn’t keep track of how long I could hold them or continuously push myself to hold them longer.  But finally I decided it was time to give it a shot and see what I could do.  Here’s a view at my progress over the last few days:

Disclaimer: These clearly aren’t my numbers for everyday but rather a few snippets to show my progress. I also do plank a day challenges with side planks but those are not included below.

  • Sat 8/18: 1 min 10 seconds
  • Wed 8/20: 1 min 20 seconds
  • Mon 8/27: 1 min 25 seconds
  • Thurs 9/6: 1 min 40 seconds
  • Mon 9/10: 1 min 50 seconds
  • Fri 9/14: 2 min

And while we’re at it, here’s something to power you through today’s workout – and power me through my 4 mile long run.

    Wow way to rock those planks girl! The last time I did one (months ago) I could hold for like a minute ten max. I really want to start doing the plank a day challenge so I can build up my core! You’re seeing your stamina increase really fast!

      I found it’s all mind over matter and that I need distractions (aka music) or I don’t think I can last more than 20 seconds. 😉

      I started playing around and hated what I came up with (ha!) so I hired someone and she did AMAZING! She also made social media icons but I’m having a hard time making my code work but they’ll make an appearance soon (hopefully!).
