Have You Planked Today (Day 5)

Posted by terrepruitt on March 5, 2013

Fifth Day Of Our Month Of Planking.  Well, what is your report?  If you are just learning the plank it is ok to do it for really short periods.  Then as you get stronger, build up your muscle endurance you can do it for longer.

Remember to keep your spine straight and everything; head, belly, hips, knees all in alignment.  Also remember to breathe.  The habit is to hold one’s breath, but muscles and your brain need oxygen, so breathe!

Still with us?
