Week 3 of the #TMPlanks challenge has started and it is getting hard! My tolerance for planks before this was 1 minute tops. Today I did 1.5! Might not sound like a huge increase but for me it is. Tomorrow is 2mins dun dun duuunnnnn. My only concern is when I hold a plank for longer than a minute it feels like my lower back is being pulled apart. I am holding the plank properly (my friend who is a physical therapist and body guru showed me how years ago) so I know that is not it. Any ideas? It hurts while holding the plank but afterwards it goes back to feeling normal. I just don’t want to screw up something in my back because that’s where I have chronic pain and issues anyways.
Get in on the challenge, if holding a 1minute plank is out of your league that’s ok! Just hold it as long as you can
This week on Mamavation TV we are talking about avoiding toxic foods with Andrea Donsky from Naturally Savvy. I am so excited about this topic. I am always looking to learn more about food labels and ingredients. And from what I’ve heard Andrea is amazing! Check out the show here: Google +
I wanted to say a big CONGRATS to all the new Mamavation Moms! I can’t wait to go on this journey with you all!
After I finish the TMPlanks challenge what other fitness challenges would you recommend? The only thing I couldn’t do is anything with a lot of squats or burpees. Gotta love joint issues!
