Anywho, through IG and this amazing lady Jennifer, I have started the #merryplanksmas challenge. Everyday you have to do a plank (and no not the kind where you lay on some random object, this one actually has physical benefits) for as long as you can. The obvious goal is to get better and better as time goes on and see how long you can plank. It may sound silly, but it's a good motivater and it's fun to try and beat your time each day. And I'm gonna have (the beginnings of) a tight ass core and abs and great arms when it's all said and done! If you decide to join in, just use the hashtag #merryplanksmas on IG or you can do the same on Facebook and hopefully I'll see it!
This was my time the very first time I did it.
This was my time just a couple of days later.
And that is me in the corner because I couldn't hold my head up.
Here are a couple of pictures of "planks". You can do them in push-up form, or on your elbows. I do the elbow version. It is harder, but it's more comfortable for my gimp shoulder. I am not a workout or medical expert (shocker I know), so please advise someone other than myself if you have more questions or concerns.
It's not too late to start!
