This Week’s Plank Challenge: PLANKENSTEIN

In this week’s Plank Challenge I introduce PLANKENSTEIN!!! This has become a favorite exercise of mine over the years, I think mostly because of the cool name I came up with. This is surely a progression for the basic plank. If you can not perform the basic plank with ideal form for 60 seconds, work on it before progressing.

Set-Up:

Resistance Band (keep it light!)

Heavy Kettlebell (you don’t want it to move!)

Loop band through the handle of the KB and make sure the two ends are even.

Perform:

With thumbs looped around the handles of the band and in good plank position alternate extending each arm.

Keep your hips as stationary as possible maintaining stability throughout the body.

*You may also drop to the floor in between each repetition if holding is too difficult. Form is key!!!
