30 day plank challenge day 26

Join us for day 26 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 26:

First is the arm side tap plank: In the full plank position, touch your hands either side one at a time. Keep the hips still and lift the chest, keeping the belly button sucked in to stabilise. You can try this on your knees too.

Then we have the half burpee plank: Start in full plank, jump the feet to the hands, and hold in a squat keeping the hips low. Lean forward to put your hands back on the floor and jump back into plank position and hold. Repeat.

Lastly, we have plank lunge glute lifts: Step your left foot forward into a lunge, and then take it back and raise. Repeat three times, and then swap legs.

First up is the squat thrust plank: Start in the full plank position. Jump your feet to your hands and back out again. Repeat ten times. Alternatively you  onto your elbows and bring your knee around the outside.

Repeat the three exercises two more times.
