Multiple Planks In One Day For Thirty Days

Posted by terrepruitt on March 30, 2013

So, what do you think? Do you want to do a Multiple Planks In One Day For Thirty Days Challenge? Oh, c’mon. You do. You saw how just doing one a day helped you feel good so why not do more than one a day? The challenge will be for three a day for thirty days, for the entire month of April. The idea is to take your last duration time and just do it three times a day. Or you can just let the stopwatch run, three times a day. If you want you can do it all at once or throughout the day. The ideal is THREE PLANKS A DAY. But two is better than one, and one is better than none. So even if you don’t get in all three it is still good. But aim for the three.

I will tell you (again, I think I’ve already mentioned it) posting on a blog EVERY SINGLE DAY is not easy. Even if it is just a few sentences. As you probably have experienced when checking-in with the challenges. Plus I know I have some lovely readers who have subscribed (THANK YOU!) and they get a notification when I post. Even if it is not an e-mail everyday it might start clogging up the in-box. So . . . . as you can see on the calendar in this post I have designated a check in day! I have made the check in day on Sunday. With a Sunday check in we can report on the previous week and get psyched up for the week to come! That will also spread out my check ins and posts a little. I have a Friday Goodie Jar check in and I post on Saturdays, so I thought Sunday would be good.

Also with a once a week check-in that will free up time to do the planks! Yay!

The forearm planks are what we are talking about. The ones where you are on your elbows and forearms, not the straight armed ones. No matter if you plank for a set time or just let the clock run be sure to keep the bones in alignment. Arms bones straight down from shoulders, head aligned with hips, straight spine, no peaks or valleys, straight legs, and feet hip joint width apart.

Remember the challenges we do are just to set a goal and get it done. But the way you do the challenge exactly is up to you. Our guidelines are: 1) Plank every day three planks a day 2) Document the number of times/planks you do a day 3) Post on Sunday how many times you planked the past week.

Your three planks could be the longest duration to short or the other way around. Or all three the same duration. There are a lot of ways you can do that portion, just do it three times a day/three planks a day, yes? Yes. However you are going to do it decide before you start so you have a your own guidelines to stick too. When you have a plan it makes it easier to get it done.

I will have to get at least one in before Nia everyday!

Well, you in? C’mon . . . . . .

    • Guess we need to talk . . . gotta get the scoop!

      Yeah, since I will be seeing you a few of those days we can do them together.

      I forgot today! Saturday! I knew I should have done it earlier, but I was trying really hard not to be late for a tea. So do you know what I did? I didn’t do ANYTHING that was not “getting ready” related. I got ready. My mom called (for the second time) I told her I had to go, a few things “came up” and I let them go to concentrate on getting ready . . . and then bam. I was ready then hubby came home and I ended up helping him the groceries that didn’t allow me to do those other things I ignored. But I made it to the tea on time. But when I got home I forgot about my planks! ARG!!!!!!!! I made it 29 days and I forgot with TWO days left! SNAP!

      Glad you got yours in. And on a weekend even! Yay you!

      Happy Easter. I hear you are having great weather. How was your Easter Egg hunt? A huge event or what?
