Weekend Challenge: February 23rd and 24th

HELLO! IT’S THE WEEKEND!

And with the weekend comes something new I’d like you to try. I’m going to start posting a Weekend Challenge every Friday night for you to try Saturday and Sunday. Some weekends it may be an exercise, some it may be a stretch, some it may be something relaxing that will just make you feel good about yourself, but it will always be short and easy.

So here is your first weekend challenge:

Before each meal you eat this weekend (Yes that means breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks too if you’re feeling ambitious) try this modified plank that really gets your core working.

Step 1- Extended arm plank position.

Step 1- Extended arm plank position.

Step 2- Bring one knee straight up to elbow
Step 2- Bring one knee straight up to elbow

Step 3- Twist knee across body to opposite knee

Step 3- Twist knee across body to opposite knee

Step 4- Bring knee back to Step 2, knee straight up to elbow
Step 4- Bring knee back to Step 2, knee straight up to elbow

Step 5- Return to Extended arm plank position.

Step 5- Return to Extended arm plank position.

Now do the same thing with the other leg. Alternate between each side for 1 minute. This move isn’t necessarily for speed. Your form and movement are what are really going to give you the most out of this exercise. If you want, you can keep track of how many you do and try to beat your breakfast score, but remember the key is form!

So, this takes a grand total of 6 minutes out of your weekend, 3 minutes out of each day. It’s not much. Can you handle it??

(This is the part where you shout at your computer “I’M NO WUSS OF COURSE I CAN HANDLE IT!”)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Good Things 🙂
