planks on planks

Guys! Guys! Guys!

When I found out that Kait the great! was co-hosting a cool fitness link-up, you know this girl couldn't say no. My girl Kait from Kait Makes A Run For It, Rebecca from Getting To The Show, and Chelsea who blogs over at Delipsch are hosting a challenge to show off your favorite fitness moves during the month of May. Today's calls for sharing your favorite abs movement.

Hands down my favorite movement would have to be any variation of the plank. Why planks?! Answer: because they work than just your core. It may not look like it, but Planks are pretty much a total body exercise. Plus, there are so many variations you can do with the plank, so you'll never get bored. Besides the regular plank, you have:

-and so, so many more. 

Here is a great plank circuit from PopSugar Fitness to try out. If you need to know any of the movements you can find them here.


And don't worry, I found you a great playlist to keep your mind off the planks while you're doing the circuit. I am so kind, I know.


Now go get your twerk plank on!

May Challenge

Cheers!

I don't mean to be dramatic, but i would rather be shot in the face than do a plank.

I also need an attitude adjustment apparently.

Up-Down planks burn soooo good.

Rachel Sedaker said...

I did an outdoor fitness bootcamp two summers ago and we did the up-down planks and they were killer! But I agree- planks are great overall workouts, which is especially great if you're short on time.

I have such a love/hate relationship with planks. I did some yesterday and my stomach hurts when I laugh today, so I guess I know they work.
