Ninth Day Of Our Month Of Planking

Saturday and our ninth day of planking.  The nice thing about this challenge is even if it is your “rest” day in your workout schedule you can still get in some planking time!

I have another idea on how to time yourself.  Once you feel you have good form, your body is aligned properly, you can use a stopwatch type of timer.  I have one on my iPhone.  I would imagine other phones have something like it.  I know there are a lot of apps for timers.  Get into your plank position and then press start on the timer.  Check your form, get comfortable, settle in and then look at your timer.  I bet by the time you look at the stopwatch you will have already done the time you think you can do.  Then if you want you can hold it for a few seconds more.

This is a way for you to find out how long you really can do it.  Then you can add accordingly.

Also remember there might be days where the duration is less than normal.  It is ok to have a day that is a bit off.  Just get back to it the next day!

Whatever way you choose to time yourself is great.  This is just another way to do it!

How is your planking going?

  2. I took a day off from doing Nia and I did some yoga instead. There were a lot of planks in the yoga “routine”. But I still got my 35+ seconds in.
