Plank It Out – PLANKS For Days!

I love planks!! Mostly because they truly kick your butt! Who knew a plank could be SO hard?! There are so many fun ways to change up planks – so today I thought I would do a plank challenge :-/ LOTS of different plank moves to keep from getting bored. Here we go….lets plank!!! Remember DO NOT hold your breath when you are planking – you need to control your breathing. If you hold your breath the exercise becomes even more difficult and your posture is compromised.
