I am a PANSY when it comes to planks...and I REALLY wish I were exaggerating. I am literally intimidated by them and always cringe when I see them listed as part of a workout I'm trying. Why are they so incredibly hard? And why does it feel like time practically stands still the second I push "start" at the beginning of a 1 minute plank?? I'm aware that it's not "normal" to fear and loathe all things related to planking, but they hurt! And I don't particularly care to hurt...can you relate?
All this being said, I decided that with the end of a challenge fast approaching, I needed to combat my propensity to slack off during the break by not only facing my PLANK fear, but destroying it! I am starting a 30 Day Plank Challenge and would LOVE to have you join (and encourage) me. I'm going to need all the help I can get...AND to make it just a little bit more "FUN," I thought I'd throw in a 30 Day Squat Challenge as well. I mean, if you're going to go to the effort to put your workout clothes on, you might as well get sweaty, right? I guess you could probably plank in any clothes, but during a challenge break, I'm always on the lookout for a reason to put on my workout clothes and get to the gym. Hopefully, this will be just the inspiration I (and you) need. You know you don't want to undo all the hard work you've just put into these last 8 weeks, so print out the calendar and let's do this together!!!
