Forearm Plank Challenge

Alexa Brown

This forearm plank challenge will help strengthen your core and the longer you hold the position, the more calories you are going to burn. 

Here is how you find the perfect form for your forearm arm plank.  Bring your feet hip width apart, your elbows directly underneath your shoulders and your hands flat to the floor.  Pull your abs in and keep your abs tight into your spine while you hold your plank.

Kick it up a notch by adding a resistance band to your ankles and/or wrists.  See if you can challenge yourself by keeping an active press out on the bands.

Monday - 1 minute

Tuesday - 2 minutes

Wednesday - 3 minutes

Thursday - 4 minutes.  During the last minute, try alternating lifts with your legs.  Feel your abs contract each time you lift your legs.

Friday - Plank as long as possible!

 I can't wait to hear how you did! Please add a comment below and tell me how long you held your Friday plank!
