A Plank a Day Challenge: Day 6 of 30

I decided to take on the plank a day challenge for 30 days. I have never held the plank position for more than 90 seconds at one time so I am wondering if I will really be able to hold it longer than that as time wears on.

Recap:
(1.17) Day 1 – 30 sec: Pretty Easy. I did two sets to help prepare for what is to come
(1.18) Day 2 – 40 sec: Almost forgot about the challenge already. Ended up doing the plank at 11:00 at night just before bed
(1.19) Day 3 – 50 sec: Still hanging in there. Feeling strong like this is doable.
(1.20) Day 4 – 60 sec: Doing okay. Hubby got down and had to show off by holding plank way longer than my 60 seconds.
(1.21) Day 5 – 70 sec: Almost forgot about my challenge already. Had to get out of bed and did alright.
(1.22) Day 6 – 80 sec: Thought I would change it up and start my day with this challenge. Dismal failure. Lasted 30 seconds, then 15 seconds, than another 15 seconds. Going to attempt to revisit this challenge tonight. Starting t think I should have added 5 seconds a day.

A Plank a Day Challenge for 30 Days!

So, I decided to take on a challenge that a fellow BTer posted, “I joined a plank a day challenge on twitter and thought it was a cool idea so I’ll start a challenge here. It’s simple do at least one plank a day for at least 30 seconds.”

My challenge starts today and my goal is to start with a 30 second plank today and add 10 seconds each day. This means that at the end of 30 days, I will hold a plank for 5:20…. I don’t think so. We’ll see how it goes.
