 The Beauty of Planks : Powerful Results with Little Space Needed

Today I wanna talk about planks and why they are so wonderful!
Let’s start off with naming 25 different kinds of planks, benefits, and tips! There are a ton! My suggestion in ramping up your fitness game is to use the following plank techniques with a 30 day challenge that increases the time per day (most of the 30 day challenges I have seen increase by 5 seconds per day). You could mix up the different techniques or chose one exercise per month to complete!

  • I actually don't think I have ever done a reverse plank! The plank I do all of time that I love because it kicks my butt and i am not sure what it's called…. but basically you plank normally and then lower your elbows to the ground, then come back up and plank normally and repeat that. Lately I can only do about 15, maybe 20 at most without dying. Lol but it works your entire body and you can feel it.
