Plank Challenge

This challenge, alongside the Sugar detox, is meant to increase your core strength and improve your mental toughness. You will be planking every day and adding 5 seconds to your previous planking time.
Beginners:
Start out with a daily plank and hold for 30 seconds either on your hands or forearms (or start on your knees, if need be). Repeat if you can up to 3 x. The following day, add 5-10 seconds to your plank time and, if starting on your knees, try doing a few seconds without bearing weight on your knees – just your toes!). Repeat this every day for 21 days.

Intermediate:
If you can already easily hold a one minute or more plank, try going for 1.5 to 3 minutes. Once you have your first day baseline, add 5 seconds to that time each day. You can vary the style of your plank (elbow, forearms, side plank) each day, but you must use the same plank style without moving to a different style of plank per session timed.

Advanced:
If you can easily hold a plank for 3-5 minutes, you can choose to do a weighted plank for time. Placing a plate on your back (get someone to help with this) or using a weighted vest. On the first day, hold the weighted plank as long as possible – this will be your baseline time. Add 5 seconds to that time each day for 21 days. (Or, for the hardcore…increase weight every week along with the basic 5 second addition!)
