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…
- Have you used the TRX?
- What is your favorite most creative way to plank?
- What is you plank PR? How long can you hold it for?
