But let’s be real, this is my fitness post so I’m not talking about that kind of plank. I’m talking about the planking that serves as a killer ab workout and strengthens your arms, back, calves, quads, and shoulders. I remember being able to do planks for over a minute back in high school then I recently tried to plank and found my body shaking after only 10 seconds. WTF. Well … the more you do it the easier it will become, so here is a bomb workout found on Women’s Health website (my fave fitness website)
- Opposite Knee Tuck – 10 reps, 1 set
- Oblique Grab – 10 reps, 1 set
- Side-Plank Flip – 10 reps, 1 set
- Two-Limb Plank – 10 reps, 1 set (this hurts my knees – weird – so I do a variation of arms then legs separate)
The goal is to add one of these 4 moves to your normal ab routine each day. Even if I don’t get in a full workout, I do abs first thing in the morning or before bed so add one of these each day in rotation and you’ll be on your way to a bikini bod for the winter!
Here’s to sexy abs … WOO-HOO!
