I decided at the end of January that it would be a good idea to force a habit of exercise and do something every day that is both hard and beneficial.
So, the 30 day challenge was born – technically it runs for calendar months not strictly 30 days, but it still works.
First up – are 5 minutes of plank exercises every day during February.
I’m already 10 days into it and it is only just getting easier. Coupled with the HIIT and CrossFit that I also do in the week – some days the planks completely finish me off.
That said – doing them first thing in the morning is such a sense of achievement and sets me up for the day.
If you would like to do the same challenge, here are the exercises:
Kudos to Neila Rey who put the visual together!
I use the very useful IntervalTimer by Seconds Pro to help me not cheat on the timing. Here is the timer for this plank workout.
Next for March: 3 minutes of High Knees every morning!
