Move It! Monday

Jul 25th

It seems that the pop culture’s “planking”

has taken over the nation!

Today’s Move it! Monday will show you the many ways and places you can safely plank.┬áThis effective single exercise will burn lots of calories while working the entire body.

 

1. Plank Modification for the beginner.

“The Park Bench Plank.”

2. The Beach Ball plank

3. The Swinging plank Challenge

4. The Side Plank Variation


In all of these:

Place your feet/ shins (more challenging) or thighs/ knees (to make it easier) on the ball/ swing or ground and your hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Keep your abdominals drawing inward and the shoulders drawing gently down away from the ears.

Try to hold for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
