Welcome to the 30 Day Plansgiving Challenge! 

 This is so simple and it only takes a few minutes each day to really get a lot of benefits.
Start now and begin to notice stress relief, core strength and knowing you are doing something that will help your immune system fight off invaders.

 

Be sure to get your physician’s approval before beginning any fitness program or routine.

 
Do not overdo the plank exercise!
Only increase the time as your endurance increases.
This is not a contest!!!
If you end up doing 30 seconds for 30 days you are a Rock Star for sticking with it.
If you are advanced and can do more…..by all means do it.
This challenge is meant to provide a daily motivation to be consistent.
Core exercises are very powerful and you will notice your strength will increase quickly…if you stick with it!

The times listed are suggested for beginners. Please adjust according your own abilities.

Step 4- Set a timer and do your first plank. Keep in mind that this will be your starting goal for how many seconds/minutes you begin with, so don’t make it so difficult that you stop doing it! The objective is gradually increase and only do the time that is sustainable for YOU.
Step 5- Read the prompt for Day 1 (click on the tab at the top of the weekly section to open it) and enter your response and your plank time in the comments below.
You can use any topic you choose, but try to keep it in the ballpark. Ex: Prompt “Tell us about your pet” could be talk about the neighbors pet, a childhood pet, or any animal you have a relationship with.
That is all there is to it! You could take it step further by posting a pic of you planking or of something you are grateful for in your social profile to spread the happiness as well.

Schedule

I heard a rumor that the planks were too easy. So, if you WANT to beef up your challenge or add some extra oomph, here you go! Just remember, the Planks and Thanks are required for your completion bonus each week, these are only for you if you want to do some extra work 🙂

Also, the amount of sqats or crunches is entirely up to you. The calendar is only a guide to give you an idea of how to progress, it depends on you and your abilities to determine what is safe for you to do.

There is no time like the present!  It only takes a minute, so let’s get started!
