There is one challenge, everyone talks about today in the social media: the 30 day plank challenge.
More than 500.000 people enrolled in the plank challenge starting today and lasting for 30 days. These guys fight their winter fat by doing a very simple but extremely effecitive exercise: the plank. I’ll tell you today how to do the exercise correctly and hot to get fit.
Almost everyone can join the plank challenge. It is an easy exercise which also beginners may perform. The first day starts with minimum strain. People only hold the plank position for 20 seconds. The time to hold the position increases from day to day until the last plank exercise takes 270 secons (4.5 minutes).
Holding this position is a kind of whole body exercise. It trains shoulders and arms, belly and back muscles, thighs and butt. Everything you need is a stop watch and a fitness mat.
In order to do a plank, we go into upper pushup position amd put our forearms on the floor. Our muscles are strained and we hold the position for the alloted amount of time. It is important that we keep our body absolutely straight while holding this position.
So, you see, the exercise is very easy. However, holding this position for several minutes can be extremely exhausting.
