Planking- while hanging from the Ceiling!

Hi Lovelies,

If you’ve read my previous post, you should know that I am participating in the Under Armour What’s Beautiful Competition. If you haven’t joined yet, register NOW… you will not be disappointed! ¬†The three participants who tell the most epic journey wins a trip to Costa Rica for surf and yoga lessons. That would be totally awesome if I won ( I mean anything is possible,) however, at this moment I am not even thinking about the winning prize. Instead, I am using the What’s Beautiful community to find inspiration and learn new things.

One of the knew things I have discovered is the TRX. And this is how…

While searching for inspiration, for something new and different. I noticed that everyone¬†has been doing different types of planks and setting new PRs. Why? Because¬†there has been a plank challenge going on among the What’s Beautiful community. ¬†Because I love challenges, I had to get in on this one.

I came across the most fabulous plank done by Veronica D. This plank was by far was the most new, different, unique, creative plank I had ever seen. She was planking while hanging from a TRX.

I had seen a TRX before, but never used it. Turns out this morning at my gym, I saw one hanging from the ceiling. I immediately wanted to play on it. So here I am doing my plank using the TRX.

I also posted a video of me doing this plank to my What’s Beautiful profile. And this plank video is my first video I uploaded to youtube. So head over there and check it out!¬†BTW I held this plank for over a minute. My planks are getting stronger and stronger. Practice makes perfect.

In the end, I love finding new and different ways to accomplish old exercises. Shocking your body and switching things up is the best way to strengthen and get results. I can’t wait to get on the TRX again.

Questions for You…

  1. Have you used the TRX?
  2. What is your favorite most creative way to plank?
  3. What is you plank PR? How long can you hold it for?

      No I haven’t, I am not sure if they give it to everyone, or just choose a few people randomly every week. I have seen others post pics pf their swag on their profile pages when they get it. People have received bag, shoes, sports bras, etc…They probably will send you an email before they send you swag. I hope you and I get something soon. ūüôā
