Power Plank WorkoutPosted on October 17, 2014 at 12:01 am
HAPPY FIT FRIDAY! And Friday in general…let’s be honest (; I’m so pumped for this weekend…Jason Aldean tonight! And the weather is actually fabulous here in Florida right now…which is rare. It’s in the 70s and sunny. I wish it was like this more often! I’ve been spending the afternoons with the windows open, fall scented candles burning, baking up some fall deliciousness! My favorite right now are these protein pumpkin cookies from Taralynn. They almost remind me of muffins and they are so good with my morning coffee!
Another perk of this weather: I’ve been able to do most of my workouts outside without wanting to pass out! I like training outside way better than inside so this makes my fall-loving heart so happy.
Some tips for your planks:
- Make sure your body is in one straight line. Don’t arch your back or drop your hips too low! Don’t stick your butt up in the air.
- Squeeze everything tight – this means your abs, butt AND quads.
- Keep your wrists (or elbows for a forearm plank) aligned with your shoulders.
- If you’re doing a forearm plank, don’t clasp your hands together.
Grab a timer and knock this workout out before you start your weekend!
