    I'll count all isometric excersises.
    Oct 1: nuffin
    Oct 2: 5:00 wall sit
    Oct 3: 6:00 wall sit, 4:00 planks, 5:00 glute bridges (hope I did them right, they seemed easy, but 5min were enough 😁)
    Oct 4: 4:00 wall sit, 4:00 planks, 5:00 bridges

    Oct 5: 4:00 planks (part of German Body Recomp, Day1: 4 × ups&downs) + 5:00 bridges (was I shaking at the end! it was after lifting, but this goes to show that they are real 😀)

    Oct 6: 5:30 wall sit (yeah!) + 4:30 planks during a HasFit advanced HIIT workout
    Oct 7: 6:30 wall sit + 4:30 planks (3:00 of which were the good ole bowflex 😃)
    Oct 8: 5:00 wall sit + 4:00 planks + 4:00 sumo squat (#2 from isometrics video - next time I might push it a little longer). I need stop pushing and plank for 3, at most 4 min a day or I'll reach "saturation" soon, as it happened the previous months. 😎
    Oct 9: rest day
    Oct 10: 5:30 wall sit + 4:00 planks
    Oct 11: 4:00 planks

    Oct 12: 6:00 wall sit + 3:00 planks + 3:30 bridges, as I write this 😂

    Oct 13: 5:00 wall sit + 5:00 glute bridges + 2:00 sumo squats. No planks, cause I did a standing planks workout.

    Oct 14: 10 min of isometrics, broken down into 5:00 planks + 2x1:30 static lunges + 2x1:00 bridges with 1 raised leg

    Oct 15: 10 min of various tough planks during a HasFit 45 min HIIT workout with weights

    Oct 16: 12 min of isometrics: 3:00 torture... erm wall sits + 1:30 planks (+another 1:30 during a HIIT workout) + 2:30 sumo squat + 5:00 bridges. 🙌

    Oct 17: super tough legs&abs HIIT; worth of 3:00 (or 4:00) planks scattered through the workout

    Oct 18: looks like I took a rest day (went for an autumn hike in the afternoon)

    Oct 19: just wall sit, but 6:00 of it in a row! 🙂

    Total: planks 57:00
    All isometrics: 130:00
    Wall sit: max 6:30

    September: rest. Did some, during other workouts, but not explicitely/no counting.

    ETA: After some quick math, I'm already on track to do 60.5 minutes.

    But, if I do 2x sets this Sunday as well as some Hallowe'en planks, I can be well over 70 minutes for the month.

    I'm getting into the bigger numbers but so far, my wrists are fine. I've not used much of anything but gloves so far, really.

    I've caught up after my two short holidays.
    We haven't got any more holidays for a while - we had a break in North Wales booked in November, that's now re-arranged for December but I have my doubts about it. The fortnight in Lanzarote is re-arranged for next year.
    I expect to be pretty quiet now until the spring.
    So next month I should be planking every day!
