Surviving That 5 Minute Plank

About surviving that 5 minute plank: If you started the FitForceFX Plank Challenge with me on the first of this month, then you are at 4.5 minutes and tomorrow is the big day! You are almost there! Congratulations – you rock! If you joined us late, took a break (aka “forgot” to do your planks) or are just starting the Challenge now, you’ve got this! Here are some tips to survive the challenge… 1) Settle in and watch a music video on your iphone (placed on the floor in front of you – don’t strain your neck). This helped me immensely the last time I did this challenge and I made it to 5.5 minutes! Holding a plank for this long is not only physically taxing, but mentally taxing as well. I found it easier when I could take my mind off the pain and deflect the boredom.

2) Recruit your favorite cheerleaders. I had my kids and husband cheering me on to the last second!

The 5 minute plank is a paradox in that you are using relative inactivity to challenge and strengthen your abdominal muscles. It’s super TOUGH! But so are YOU! If you find you need to modify to get through it, switch your position or drop to your knees. Don’t compromise your form! It’s better to modify than to compromise form and potentially injure yourself.

MOVE OF THE WEEK: PLANK (in honor of our 30 Day Plank Challenge)

Sometimes the simplest of movements result in the greatest gains to your fitness.  This is certainly the case with planks. A plank may look easy at first, but this is deceiving. Holding a proper plank position takes strength and endurance in your abs, back, and quads.

The plank is one of the most effective exercises for core conditioning, as it engages multiple muscle groups simultaneously.  Not only does it give you a killer core, but it also works your glutes and hamstrings, supports proper posture, reduces back-pain, and improves flexibility and balance.

Visit my FB page for detailed instructions on how to do a proper plank, as well as for modifications.
