Weekend Challenge

Good form is key to any exercise being effective. This weekend, I would like you to try a 30-60 second plank, depending on your fitness level. Please perform one everyday.

Remember:

Keep your shoulders over your elbows.

Keep core/abs tight by imagining there is a string pulling your belly button up to your spine (or someone is about to punch you in the stomach).

Unclench hands as the rest of your body is tense enough.

Breathe in your nose and out of your mouth.

Here is a video for some more tips.

ADDITIONAL CHALLENGE for the ladies out there!


Please do a self-breast check this weekend. Two people I know how been diagnosed with breast cancer in the last 2 weeks. Take control of your body and your health.

Coppafeel is a fantastic charity to help you remember to do self-checks. Please have a look!
