30 day plank challenge day 30

You’ve reached day 30 of our 30-day plank challenge with personal trainer and creator of the Healthista Fit Hiit app, Kelly Du Buisson. Well done!

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. Well done if you have made it all the way to the end of this challenge. 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.
