Nocturnal R 13/30
This challenge will help you to hold the plank pose from 20 seconds to 5 minutes in 30 days! Plank exercises are a popular element of isometric training, which involves contracting your muscles against stationary resistance. It will work you upper abs, your lower abs, your obliques and your lower back. You will feel your core getting stronger. It is hard, it works your entire body, but the results are noticeable!

“This one was extremely hard to do, especially breaking the gap between 3 minutes to 5 minutes. But I read some tips about distracting yourself while you are planking rather than looking at the stopwatch and it really works! I will start an episode of Friends when I start the plank and before you know it all those minutes would have gone by!”
