Join us for day 19 of our 30-day plank challenge with personal trainer and creator of the Healthista Fit Hiit app, Kelly Du Buisson. A five-minute video every day of August, the most simple way to keep trim this summer
Welcome to the Healthista 30 day plank challenge, where during August personal trainer Kelly Du Buisson takes you through a new, free five-minute workout with three variations of the plank, each day. You can find day one here. Following the new plank workout, we’re also posting daily with the 30-day smoothie challenge with nutritionist Rick Hay, a new weight loss smoothie video recipe for you every day. This could be your fittest August yet – all free.
‘The plank challenge aims to wake up the entire core area including the rectus abdominals, the TVA, internal and external obliques and the gluteus’, says Kelly. ‘The aim is to improve posture and strength which will improve your everyday lifestyle and increase stamina and endurance in sport. If you’ve never done planks before hopefully you’ll burn calories and create some lean muscle. If you’re a plank expert this will help you find new ways to test your body.’ The best thing about the plank is you need no equipment at all and it can be done anywhere.
For the 30-day plank challenge day 19:
Today Kelly begins with a commando plank, using a move that you’ll be well used to if you’ve been keeping up with your challenge for the past few days.
Next, personal trainer Kelly moves into a side plank crunch, touching elbows to your knees. This movement will tone your whole body but will seriously burn your obliques. Swap sides and then its on to the next movement – superman planks which will challenge your balance and pull in your core.
Repeat all three moves twice.

I created the Healthista Fit HIIT App for people who are short on time but looking for the most effective results from their workouts. With the option to choose how long you exercise and to tailor your workout specifically to your level, there is no equipment required so you can workout wherever you are. You can progress as you improve by choosing the more advanced options so the routines should never get dull and with moves designed to work every angle of the body we not only burn calories but create lean, strong muscles and protect the body from injury. The best bit? No two workouts are ever the same!
I also recommend the Healthista protein powders as they are free from any artificial additives but full of essential nutrients. My favourite is the Lean Vegan Chocolate Diet Protein as I can add this to a smoothie or coconut water for an on the go breakfast that provides a great kick start to my metabolism.
