The Rules of the Challenge!

1. Plank can be broken up into different types and reps (ex. side plank, straight-arm plank, side stepping planks, etc)

2. Time rolls over day to day (ex. if you miss a day of planking, you just tack it on to the next day) 

3. Find a buddy and keep each other accountable (we are social creatures designed to work in teams ad groups)

Q: How do you know if you’re doing them wrong?

“If you’re feeling the brunt in your lower back and arms and not through your abs, glutes and quads.”
— Jennifer Burke, Director of Education CRUNCH Fitness

Planking is the best, safest way to strengthen your core without compromising the spine.

2. Bosu plank - use Bosu instability ball under forearms to add a new challenge to the core.
