Plank Challenge Day 2: Fire Up Your Core
Welcome to day two of the #planklovechallege! Today we are doing forearm hip dips and forearm alternating leg lifts (exercises are outlined below). Keep your core engaged, connect to your breath and take your time. Perform 8-12 reps of each move and repeat the routine a few times. Always check with your doctor before beginning any new routine.
1. Forearm Plank Hip Dips
Come to forearm plank position, with elbows underneath shoulders, forearms and palms flat. Get onto your toes and flatten the back as you zip up your abs. Alternate “dipping” your right hip towards the ground, come back to start position, then “dip” the left hip towards the ground. Perform 8-12 reps.
2. Forearm Plank Alternating Leg Lifts
Come to forearm plank position, with elbows underneath shoulders, forearms and palms flat. Alternate lifting one leg at a time up with control, not going so high you lose form. Perform 8-12 reps. Repeat the entire sequence a few times.
