The Modified Plank Challenge
Thursday, April 09, 2009
2 days ago, I generated a new strength training program. Which Includes Modified Planks. From the beginning, I had not had to much difficulty to do any of the exercises, but this one is a real challenge for me. At the beginning, I couldn't hold it for more than 30 seconds!
I understood that my mind has to be stronger than my body, so today I tried holding it for an entire minute. It was hard, but I did it!
I now want to challenge myself so that I can hold that minute without much trouble, and then work my way up to 3 minutes as recommended.
I realized it's not a question of only losing weight, it's a question of being in shape! And though I've lost around 40lbs so far, I'm still far from havin a toned body =]
Anyway, I'm on my way!
