Workout Wednesday~ Plank Challenge Week 4

Welcome to Plank Challenge Week 4!  Congratulations on making it this far!  Are you making time for your quick daily plank variations?  Are you compounding the planks from week to week; adding more endurance to your planking?  Or are you finding it best to focus solely on the theme of the week each day?  Have you incorporated these plank variations into your strength routines?
