31-Day Planking Challenge
If you’re not familiar with planking, it’s a core-strengthening exercise that provides an excellent foundation for numerous types of physical fitness training. A strong core is essential for maintaining balance, supporting optimal posture, reducing back pain and joint dysfunction, building endurance, and promoting the success of overall strength training.
Planking can be done quickly and relies on gravity and body mass to create resistance, so it requires no special equipment and only a minimal time commitment. That means that planking can be integrated into even the busiest scheduling with relative ease.
The table below outlines the protocol for the 31-Day Planking Challenge, which is designed to allow beginners to build their core strength and endurance over time.
