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.

100 jumping jacks

60 second high knees

Set One:

60 second elbow plank


60 second side elbow plank – each side


20 reps elbow plank with leg lift – each side


Set Two:

20 reps side elbow plank with knee tucks – each side


20 reps elbow plank with arm reach – each side


30 second hold – plank with knee tuck to chest – each side


Set Three:

60 second straight arm plank


30 plank jacks


30 second hold – plank with right knee to left elbow – repeat on opposite side


Set Four:

30 reps – elbow plank with donkey kicks – each side


30 reps – stability ball knee tuck


30 reps – reverse lunge with leg lifts – each side


Finish your workout off with a 60 second plank hold!

Leg Burn Workout

Today is the day that your legs are going to burn, and oh that burn feels SO good. Normally I enjoy a workout that targets your entire body, but it is always fun to change it up and target those areas that easily could use more attention! This workout is ensured to leave your legs and rear feeling the burn. You can always make any exercise more challenging by adding hand weights while you do the exercise, and/or by adding reps, and/or by adding hops to the exercise. For example: instead of doing squats do jumping squats, or add little hops after every lunge.

A new exercises that I haven’t mentioned before:

Cross body mountain climbers: you will position yourself in a plank like position as you do with mountain climbers but you will bring your right knee up to your leg elbow, return it to starting positions, then bring your left knee up to your right elbow, rerun it to starting position and repeat.


Enjoy this workout! Remember to drink lots of water and stretch out your legs after the workout so that you do not get too stiff! Hope you have a fabulous Thursday and you feel the BURN!!

Workout on Vacation


The majority of people think of vacation as a week off of exercise and diet, but why? You finally have time available to have an un-stressed workout, isn’t that the time when we should get in some good healthy movement for our bodies and minds? We leave behind a lot of life’s stresses when we go on vacation and exercise creates so much positive energy in the body, it seems like the ideal time to rev up your body and energy levels. Believe it or not exercising will actually increase your relaxation and your overall positive mentality.

The great thing is that you really do not need anything for a good workout. Just yourself, an open positive mind and some water πŸ˜‰ if you don’t have the open positive mind I guarantee you will be closer to that point after your workout!

This is just an example of a basic exercise that I did this morning in my hotel room in VEGAS of all places! Unfortunately it was cut a little short because my son started to fuss….but I at least got myself going and sweating and feel amazing! I encourage you to seize the opportunity on vacations to get moving!

100 jumping jacks
90 sec jump rope – without rope just the motion
45 sec high knees
45 sec butt kicks
100 low jacks

Skaters – 30 each side
15 Burpees

50 bicycle crunches
100s – pilates style abs
50 crunches
50 alt straight legs – ab exercise

25 static lunges each side
25 calf raises each side
25 step ups each side – use a chair in the room
25 extended back leg raises each side – either hold onto the counter in the bathroom and do standing -OR- get down on all fours and do leg raises

30 tricep dips – side of chair or bathtub
15 push-ups

30 sec side plank each side
60 sec full plank
30 sec elbow plank

50 squats

And now I feel amazing and ready to walk around crazy Las Vegas!!! I could have kept going but I had to tend to my son….but this was just enough! I encourage you to think outside the box. Whether it be on vacation or in your cubicle at work, movement is so healthy for your body and mind!

Hope you all have an amazing manic Monday! Be positive and drink water!! ☺️
