Today we are entering our second week of our October Plank Challenge. I hope everyone is off to a strong start and is ready to take it up a notch. We will continue increasing our upper body, core, and lower body strength along the front side of your body. Remember doing planks on a consistent basis you are also able to increase your flexibility and improve your posture. Let’s get started with week two!!

*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.
