Workout Wednesday~ Plank Challenge Week 5

Congratulations on making it to the final week of April’s plank challenge!  Do your arms feel stronger?  Does your body feel taller?  Does your midsection feel leaner?  If you have not had the opportunity to try Weeks 1-4 go back and try them first.  Check them out here:

How are you using your new found plank knowledge?  Are you adding these series into your workouts?  Are you starting each day with a core power wake up?  How are these simple do-anywhere exercises useful to you?

Today we add one more variation to our planks; rotation planksPlank Challenge Week 5 we will use everything you have learned about your core blended together in one rotation challenge!

I have provided 5 different levels for the Plank Rotation Challenge.  Find the level that is a touch out of your comfort zone complete 5 repetitions, 3-4 sets.  Work at this level for a week then move up to the next level.  To turn this into your core workout for the day start at level 1 then progress to your currently practicing level (doing each level) complete 3-5 rounds.
