The Truth about Planking

Friday, December 20, 2013

I've been reading a lot about the latest fitness craze - planking.

Apparently there is a planking challenge on SparkPeople. Some people are really serious about it, and I'm always up for a good challenge, and a good laugh.

So, I thought I would share this pic that my dear hubby posted on his facebook page after I tried planking:



I suggest for those of you who are not in training for the Iron Man (or Woman) completion, to first check with your medical professional.

For serious plankers, here's a link to a SparkBlog about planking

ercises_for_a_stronger_core


But planking is actually not a new rage. Some of our favs have been doing it for years.








Happy planking!

    Great pictures! Gave me a laugh!

It took me several months to build up to a one-minute plank so I was thinking about that plank challenge for one of my January goal. We'll see.

Thanks for your sense of humor!

    Very funny blog. Actually, I've tried planking and I do like it (basic plank, nothing fancy). I was surprised that I could do it. At least it doesn't bother my neck like crunches.

    No planking for me and I am betting you more like the first picture than the second.
