    My goals for the month:
    100 min of planks
    • lower body isometrics ✅
    • more than 10 push-ups in a row. ✅
    4/1: 4:00 with Heather Robertson + 1:00
    4/2: 5:00 with Caroline Girvan. During workout: 1:30 wall sits.
    4/3: 20 min isometrics with growingannanas. I skipped the handstand. Maybe I will have the courage to try it by the end of the month? The workout was 5:00 planks and 10:00 legs.

    I ended up doing a workout on Sunday which had more planks in it... So

    4/4: 5:00 planks with Lille Sabri, v. doable 👍
    + 3:00 during HIIT (or more 🤷‍♀️)

    4/5: rest day (plank-wise), but got 15 pushups in (last 3 were a struggle, but I got myself off the ground). The strength workout had some legs isometrics in, I would say roughly 3:00 in total.

    4/6: Planks: 3:00 during workout + 3:00 Bowflex. Isometrics (legs): 4:00 wall sit (hard! 😐)

    4/7: 5:00 planks

    4/8: 5:00 during Le Sweat HIIT session
    4/9: 5:00 with Caroline Girvan + 3:00 wall sit
    4/10: 2:00 during back/biceps workout + 2:00 wall sit (didn't manage the 20 min isometrics with growingannanas, unfortunatelly)

    4/11: rest day
    4/12: 5:00 planks + 15 tricep pushups, yeay!

    4/13: about 3 min planks in total during HIIT, but wont count them, since I am not so sure about 4/8 (not reccording daily has me forgetting 🤦‍♀️)

    4/14: 4:00 planks & 3:00 wallsits during 🔥 dumbell workout, each in 45 sec slots

    4/15: 20 min isometrics with growingannanas. I did a very wide handstand!!! The workout was 5:00 planks and 10:00 legs (the rest was core). It felt doable this time, but since I doubt that I gained strength in 12 days (even if Girvan's Epic gives me a clear sense of progress), I will just say that some days are better than others! 👍

    4/15: I also did about 2:00 planks during Epic 1 workout

    4/16: none, rest day
    4/17: 5:00 planks during a Tabata workout

    4/18: rest day, throughout. Smart decision ;-)

    4/19: 2 workouts, where we also planked: 5:00, in 0:45 chunks + 2:00, in 1:00 sets.

    The 2nd workout had a 1:00 wall sit, which was v. double. 1h later I decided to wallsit some more: by 2:30 I thought omG 😞. So I "sat" for 4:00 🤷‍♀️. I blame the pain on my 🧦 socks 🤭

    4/20: 3:00 planks w Bowflex
    4/21: 2:30 planks during Epic workout
    4/22: 4:30 planks with Heather Robertson and 5:00 wall sit (yeay!)

    4/23: 3:00 planks during HIIT + 2:30 walls sit
    4/24: 5:00 planks, own mix + 5:30 wall sit + 1:30 courtsey holds

    4/25: rest day (hike)
    4/26: no isometrics, but 17 pushups, PR!
    4/27: 5:00 planks, own mix
    4/28: 4:30 planks, 4:00 wall (erm.. door 😀) sit

    My last post got lost, apparently. How cool is that? I think I can remember the numbers, though:

    4/29: 4:30 planks and 6:00 legs
    4/30: planned rest

    Total planks so far: 100:00
    Legs Isometrics: 65:00

    PRs April:
    * 17 pushups (26.4.)
    * wide wall stand
    * 5:30 wall sit (24.4.)
