That's not a bad idea. I've been increasing my physical activity over the past month, not a lot, but I've been doing more than I have in a long time. For the past month or so, I've been doing push-ups and doing fitness boxing on the Switch on a regular basis, but that's about it. Perhaps I should add this to the mix.

I did this a few months ago with the wife, we impressed ourselves. May be inspiring me to do it again!

Oh man, I'm so out of shape. I just did this for the first time ever. I lasted about 45 seconds.

5 days in a row. The shaking in my core is not as bad as it was when i started.

Ok, day 2 this morning was worse than day 1! Doh! Hopefully that trend doesn't continue for too long... smile

2 days in, it seems pretty easy just reading about it, but I do shake quite a bit holding the plank.

Today was about the same as the first day -- so better than the 2nd day. I'm sure it will continue to improve. yes

Went fairly well for me. I missed three days, I think. I was at a hotel for a few nights and basically just forgot to do it since I wasn't doing my normal routine! smile

I started not looking at the stopwatch. I would plank and not look and hold it as long as I could before looking. At the end, I was making it past a minute before I finally even looked. I generally held it for 1:15 most of the time.

I will likely continue through July also -- will be interesting to see if I improve. I used to be able to plank for 2 minutes pretty readily.

Planks and plank variations are some of the easiest yet most effective core workouts out there. This is a great challenge and even if you consider yourself "out of shape", core muscles are incredibly resilient. One of the only muscle groups that you can consistently train every day with no negatives.

There's only one way to make up the 8 missed days: you have to do an 8 minute plank. wink

Yeah, same. To be very clear, I did no exercising in June EXCEPT for this 1 minute plank each day. smile

I've utterly failed at this challenge. It didn't help being on vacation and totally abandoning my healthier ways of eating and somewhat regular exercising. I think today is the day that I get back to it.
