Its the week of ‘planks‘ and for some reason whenever people talk about doing planks, all I can think of is pirates.
Don’t let the muscles fool you, I am a total geek some days.
This week we are ‘walking the plank‘, but at the end of the plank will be some rock hard abs not drowning in a choppy, cold sea.
Just call me Fitmas Pirate-Loree!
Nine Planks a Planking.
Every day for this week of Fitmas, complete six to nine of the plank options listed below in a row with 30 to 45 seconds of rest between exercise.
- Front Plank
- Shoulder Tap
- Side Plank
- Weighted Plank
- Side Plank with Twist
- Plank with Push Up
- Toe Taps
- Swiss Ball Roll Out
- Walk Up
Bonus – ‘Hardest plank possible‘
Pick your plank intensity.
- Bilge Rat – 30 seconds per plank
- Land Lubber – 45 seconds per plank
- Damsel in Distress – 60 seconds per plank
- Cap’n Feathersword – 90 seconds per plank
- Jack Sparrow – 120 seconds per plank
Perhaps this week’s challenge will make the muffin top go away. Ok, totally not, but a woman can dream…can’t she? Rest assured there will be some beached whale moments at the Hoffman house and laughing will be accompanied with crying out for mercy.
I’m aiming to at least be a Damsel in Distress this week.
