This challenge is to maintain the same posture for a certain time period, 20 seconds on the first day, up to 5 minutes on day 30.
Our journalist decided to test the effectiveness of the challenge. She is not really a sedentary person, therefore she thought it would be an easy test.I was actually overconfident. When I succeeded to do them right, my core quaked, and I looked desperately at the timer on my phone as it counted down to zero, she has confessed to us.
”My abs have been strengthened and I did not really realize it until the final week when my plank hold felt considerably easier than during week one. Even though I didn’t see a difference, I could actually feel it.“
But that was actually not the only change i have made. “I have felt all of the tension accumulated by sitting at my desk was gone and I was surprised with the energy I felt after a short period of exercise,” she said.
