I stumbled upon a blog called Running for Dummies the other day, and I wanted to share the love with all of you beautiful people. This is an awesome site and I found a helpful blog post about doing the Plank exercise, and Tips for Holding a Longer Plank, which I'm totally going to try as soon as I finish this post. :)
I'm also going to do a plank challenge and try to perform one long plank everyday, to see how long I can hold it. The author of RFD says that she holds the plank for as long as she physically can every single day, and now she can hold a plank pose for upwards of 7 straight minutes! Wow that's insane!
I haven't timed myself in a long while, but I'm probably around 1:30, so I've got quite a ways to go! And I'm off to plank! I'll post my results here!
