Plank challenge

If there is one thing I've learned from the awesome folks that follow my Facebook page, it's that y'all are ALWAYS up for a challenge!!  We have some great challenges every month, and this month is no exception!  You're drinking a TON of water and really taking advantage of the ab workouts I've created.  So, KUDOS to everyone that is taking part.  I wanted to do something different with today's ab work, so the first thing that came to mind was.......PLANKING of course!!!  This ab workout is all about endurance.  It will be KEY to keep that core tight and activated the entire time your holding your plank.  I've given designated rest periods, however, at anytime if you feel you need a quick break then take it and then come right back into your plank.  This is NOT cheating....short breaks are fine.  I'm just going to ask that you don't give up and that you finish.  You can drop down to your knees at any time to modify the plank.  Get your timer ready folks and let's STOP, DROP and PLANK!!
