May Plank Challenge - Week 2 Schedule!

Posted May 19, 2014 in Sweet Success, workout, fitness, planks, workouts, healthy living, health

How did the first week of the Sweet Success May Plank Challenge go?

Are you feeling stronger? Did you make it through those 45 second arm extension planks? Those were definitely brutal! 

Well, it's time for the second week of our challenge. Here we go!

Before I share the schedule, I want to go over some info on modifying and some new plank variations we will do this week.

Take this challenge to your level! Anyone can do this. You can modify all of these plank variations. To modify most of them, just drop down to a knee plank, as shown above. Make sure you are staying in a straight line from your head to your knees and keeping your booty down. 

We're doing more side planks this week. Remember that you can stack your feet, stagger your feet or drop one knee.

Here are some variations we will do this week...

Extended Plank - Lift your right leg as you lift your left arm. Hold for a breath or two, then switch sides.

Side Plank with Leg Lift - Starting in a plank position, lift your top leg and hold. You don't have to lift your leg as high as mine is here. You can just lift a few inches.

Spiderman Plank - Start in a plank position. Bring your right knee to the outside of your right elbow. Go back to start position. Repeat on left side. To modify, come down to your knees.

Side Plank with Twist - Starting in a side plank position, bring your top arm down and under your body. Hold for a count, and return to start position.

For descriptions of other variations, see the first week's schedule.
