We are entering our fourth week of our plank challenge. We all should be increasing our plank time which is helping us to continue building our upper body and core strength. Also remember doing planks is helping us improve our flexibility and posture. So continue feeling the burn and working hard!

*Challenge Rules*

Throughout the month we will increase the duration we hold the plank for. The goal regardless of your fitness level is to continue increasing how long you can hold a plank. The goal is to be able to hold a plank for 3 minutes (beginners), 4 minutes (intermediate), and 5 minutes (advanced) by the end of the month. I want everyone to try doing the planks on your toes but if necessary you can do them on your knees if your a beginner.
