    Most of the ab workouts include planks so I think I'm just going to log the amount I do in my HIIT, abs, and core workouts.

    1 5 minutes various planks
    2 5 minutes various planks
    3 None! I did a bunch of seated advanced and boxing cardio as my calves are still recovering from overuse, that's a serious ab workout flailing your arms and legs around while trying not to wiggle!

    I have only started planks recently but have seen much improvement in my core strength. I think doing them daily for the next month will be great. I'm really excited to see how this goes. Have a great month everyone.

    May goal: 60 min.

    Just start posting! It’s a casual challenge so you can jump in any time you want and set your own goal if the 60 minutes a month isn’t what you want to do. I just joined and I’m doing the 60 minutes. Today is my 3rd day in the challenge and here’s my update!
    May 5: 3 minutes mixed planks
    Total to date for May: 9 minutes
    Still to do: 51 minutes

    I'm doing a ton of ab stuff while I'm unable to do my usual cardio and lower body stuff until I heal, these chair workouts are pretty tough on the abs! Since I'm not doing them every day right now I think I'm going to bow out. Keep planking away everyone!

    Same! I’ve been surprised at how much improvement just a few days has given me. Anyway:
    May 6: I did another 3 minutes of mixed planks
    Total: 12 minutes!
