How do you feel about planking? Ever wanted to give it a try? If you're already a proficient planker, have you thought of upping your game ?
Or maybe you're just simply craving a little challenge to get you through November, before the holiday season really takes off?
Have no fear...Planksgiving '22 is here!
It's no secret that I'm a devout planker. Looking back through some of my archived blog posts, there's evidence that's it's been happening since at least 2015. Truth be told, I have no idea when it actually started (but it seems like forever ago, LOL).
Although I have been planking-on-the-daily all these years, it has been awhile since I've done a planking challenge of sorts. My abs aren't looking scary, but they're definitely not looking as toned as I'd like them to be.
Besides, my racing season is over for a few months...so why not switch things up a bit?
Allow me to tell you about Planksgiving '22!
This will be an easy challenge to jump into, no matter where you are in your planking (or fitness) journey. Basically, I'm challenging you to simply get down on the floor and assume the position, everyday.

First of all, there aren't daily "assignments," because we're all at different levels. A 30-second forearm plank might be easy-peasy for some and nearly impossible for others (and that's alright). Instead, the focus will be on daily work, and gradual progress between now and Thanksgiving (November 24th).
If you already have planking in your fitness regimen, that's great! You'll already have a base, so daily planking (even on your rest days) shouldn't be too big of a schedule adjustment (after all, this is only for a few weeks).
If you're a beginner, try starting with a conservative time frame (maybe 15-30 seconds). Do that for the first four days, then add five (or ten) seconds for the next four. Boom! That'll get you through the first 1/3 of the challenge in no time.
So, what ya say? Are you on board to up your planking game (at least for the next 24 days)?
