Weekly Workouts: All the Planks

by Hillary on February 25, 2014

Hello there! I’m coming to you a couple days late with my weekly workouts round-up.

weekly workouts

I think I wasn’t as anxious to post my workouts from the past week because I took three rest days, and hence, I wasn’t feeling too stellar about my “performance.”

Then I thought about all that I did do, and how I respected my body by listening to it:

  • Monday: I was extremely sore from the heavy dose of exercise over the weekend
  • Thursday: I had an appointment in the evening that extended my day and I was exhausted, mentally and physically
  • Saturday: I got out of town for the day to spend time with friends

Plank Party

You may have noticed that I did a plethora of planking last week — 50 minutes total! A small group of us at work have started planking together throughout the day. Every couple of hours, we congregate and bust out 2-3 minutes of planks (of all sorts). The mini breaks add up by the end of the day! For those of you who also work in a casual office setting, you may consider incorporating plank parties into your work schedule.

Love that you are planking at work! I love to plank and have been doing a 5 minute planking routine with my girls at the gym! Love it!

That’s so great that you have others at your work who want to plank! I go through stages where I like to exercise during my lunch break, it all just depends on what else is going on in life :)

I love the planking at work idea! A coworker just became a certified yoga instructor, so we’re planning some pre or post work yoga breaks already. Might have to add planking to the mix!

Core workouts throughout the day is a great idea! I’ve been meaning to add these to my routine…pretty sure my co-workers will not join me…but then again maybe they will! That would pretty funny!

The plank is my favourite core exercise at the moment – though I can only hold it for a minute or so (haha)! I love the way they tone your back, sides and stomach all at the same time – such good bang for your buck! :)
