Fabulous Friday Fitness Challenge

Friday...happy or not, here we are at the end of another hair on fire week. Looking forward to my Saturday, the busiest day of my week with Moms In Motion, my sons football game, groceries, school projects and whatever else shows up on the calendar. Whoa this mom stuff is busy and I bet your days are similar to mine.

So take 5 and squeeze in a Fabulous Friday Fitness Challenge. This week we're doing planks with lots of variations. We'll start with the traditional and move on.

On the floor gals! Place your elbows on the floor directly underneath your shoulders, feel your shoulder blades squeeze together behind you so that your chest is open. Belly button in, curl your toes under and lift your hips. You should have a straight line from top of your head down to your heels. Hold and breath for 60 seconds.

modify:
bend your knees and balance on them instead
do three 20 second holds in lew of the full 60 at once
use the wall or a bench or a chair- just walk your feet back and line up that body

challenge:
from the start position, alternate lifting your legs one at a time
try reaching your hands out one at a time
try twist at your middle so your right hip drops toward the ground, then return to start and do the left

Don't forget to breath, feel strong and happy you are able to do a plank.

READY...SET...GO!!! 

comment when you are done.
