So I started the 30 plank challenge 3 days ago, and I’ve already missed a day…
It won’t happen again. I set an alarm on my phone to remind me… every day at 10am.
I feel my best when my body is strong. And one of the strongest times in my body’s history was when I was doing planks… in Pilates and Tae Kwon Do. I’m only a yellow belt and it’s been 5 years but I still have the reflexes… I just need to get my strength back.
And planks do it.
Day 2 (the day I missed) and day 3, I could already feel the effects of the 20 second plank I did on day 1. Go ahead, get down in a plank and try to hold it for 20 seconds… remember to put the Mississippis in there to make sure you get the full 20 seconds.
I know, I laughed, too. I used to be able to hold a plank for 2 minutes. No shaking.
20 seconds doesn’t seem like much but it’s longer than you think. And… it’s a start.
I eventually want to get back to my weekly yoga and pilates classes and to start studying Jui Jitsu at the place here in town… check them out online… Southside Jui Jitsu or on Facebook… Southside Jui Jitsu Club.
Most fights end up on the ground, so why not learn to fight there?
And they also have an exceptional self-defense class for both adults and kids. So go check them out, and tell them lifewithdani sent you 😉
