The 60 Day Plank Challenge kicks off today! We are taking our planks from 10 seconds to 10 minutes in 60 days!! Wahoo- Here we go!!
Every day I will post options for the ‘basic’ road to the 10 minute plank, as well as an ‘overachiever’ option. Notice it says ‘overachiever’ and not ‘advanced’. And ‘basic’ doesn’t mean ‘easy’ either. It just means less work. If you decide to take the ‘overachiever’ route, you are more likely to make it to the 10 minute plank. It’s all up to you.
The first week, in my opinion, is set up to be relatively easy to accomplish. BUT, after that- things will get tough VERY quickly. I recommend the ‘overachiever’ route to insure success. That’s what I’ll be doing as well.
The first task, which hopefully you have already done, is to find out what your personal record is before you even start. Time yourself in a plank- either from forearms or hands (the forearm version is more challenging), and post your progress in two places:
1- Your own personal notebook where you’ll be keeping track of everything you do in this challenge &
2- On the facebook page where you can interact and see what everyone is up to: www.facebook.com/mirzukfitness
I have received a ton of questions about which way to do the planks and what the proper form is. Here’s a short vid that will show you want you need to know:
Since we are taking our planks from 10 seconds to 10 minutes, it makes sense that today, the first day, we will plank for 10 seconds. Do it, and then record it in your notebook. Make sure to keep track of everything core/plank/this program related in your notebook.
I suggest trying to do 2 minutes with me in the above vid. It’s ok if it’s a stretch and you get a little sore. Tomorrow’s BASIC plank isn’t that much more than todays. We are going to work our way up.
See you tomorrow for Day TWO!
