Summer Challenge #2 Take-on the 30 Day Plank Challenge!!!

ACCEPT THE 30 DAY PLANK CHALLENGE!  -This will send your core strength through the roof and improve your running  running economy (more core strength = less effort).  ...What are the benefits of the Plank exercise? 

*It strengthens your lower back
*It develops your core muscles – which include the abs, back, hips and the butt.
*Helps you to avoid injuries and encourage good posture
*Can be done anywhere
*Develops your abdominals by targeting the rectus abdominis


Yes, all you have to do is HOLD this position, nothing else! It looks pretty easy, but it isn't!



...This is a beginner routine, everyone starts somewhere!    -Keeping good form is very critical:
