30 day plank challenge day 29

Join us for day 29 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 29:

First move of the day is the reverse plank leg lift. Here the starting position is an extended arm reverse plank, then with one leg at a time being lifted to the chest and a bend in the knee. Then the leg will straighten and return to the floor with the opposite leg then being lifted.

The second move of the day are plank jacks. Beginning in an extended plank, use your legs to jump opening wide and then jumping back together in the starting position.

The final move is a plank twist and kick. Beginning in an extended plank bring the left knee up to the oposite elbow which will create a twisting motion in your torso. Return the leg to the starting postion and then repeat with the other leg.
