This 30 day plank fat burning challenge will kickstart your weight loss efforts tenfold while only taking a couple of minutes a day.


30 day plank fat burning challenge


If you are just starting your weight loss journey and you already know what a plank is congratulations, you are more knowledgeable than I was when I started!

As I have said before, until I began this journey a few years ago, I was not familiar with working out or the different exercises.

Planks were introduced to me through my first Beachbody workout, P90X. I quickly realized how many muscle groups a plank workout uses.

Planks are extremely versatile. By using a variety of plank exercises, planks can be utilized to fit the needs of strengthening beginners or challenging the fittest athletes.

Using a 30-day plank fat burning challenge, you are able to strengthen core muscles, which includes some extremely important back muscles for our over 40 bodies.

As women over 40, quite often our core has weakened over time. We realize this from our stomachs getting larger as well as flabby.

Back injuries are common while working around the house if we don’t strengthen core muscles.

That’s where the 30-day plank fat burning challenge comes in. A single exercise that literally will only take a couple of minutes a day, can improve your core muscles, reduce injury, increase metabolism and burn fat.

How to Do a Plank

In order for the 30-day plank fat burning challenge to be effective, it is important to make sure you have the proper plank position.

The picture below illustrates the basic plank with proper form. It is important to keep the form as shown to prevent injury and maximize effectiveness.

If you aren’t able to do a full plank yet, you may put your knees down and/or your elbows down, keeping the basic principles of elbows under shoulders, core tightened, hips level, head/neck neutral.
