October Plank Challenge Week 4

Happy Monday Everyone!! I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready to finish the last few days of our plank challenge. There are only four days remaining which means we all should be close to reaching our final goals of holding a plank for a total of three to five minutes. With all the hard work we put in this month don’t stop now. Continue to push through and finish strong!

*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.

*Remember*

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. Also for the advanced people feel free to do different variations of planks such as on your hands, side planks, reverse plank, etc.
