I Must Be Planking Mad

Well I have been planking now for 26 days!!! Today is another rest day and I really do feel like I need a rest.

If you don't already know what I am talking about, take a look at my previous post, it explains what plankvember is all about. Well the end of plankvember is now in sight.

I really am starting to feel the burn from all this planking, I can't believe just how hard a short exercise can be.

Here is what I have done for the past week :

Day 20 - 2.5 minutes
Day 21 - 2.5 minutes
Day 22 - 3 minutes
Day 23 - 3 minutes
Day 24 - 3.5 minutes
Day 25 - 3.5 minutes
Day 26 - Rest Day

I have to say, I have noticed a bit more muscle definition in both my upper arms and upper legs and my mid section has been pulled in slightly. I measured my waist and I have lost one centimetre since I started doing the planking exercise. That might not seem like an awful lot but a change is a change so I'm pleased.

Now 3.5 minutes was extremely tough, it was touch and go as to whether I was going to be able to hold the plank position for that long so I'm not quite sure how I'm going to manage holding it for 4 minutes tomorrow.

Wish me luck!!
