The importance of core strength for runners cannot be overstated. When I attended the Minnesuing Running Camp last October, one of my takeaways was that 90% of running injuries could be prevented with a stronger core.
One simple way to strengthen your core is by holding the plank position. Simple, but effective.
With that said, it’s that time of year again- time for the Right Fits January Plank Challenge!
Just like in the past, we will work our way up to 5 minutes (300 seconds) on the last day of the month. I built rest days into the challenge, which you can always use to “make up” days if you miss a few. I set up the challenge to only increase by 10-20 seconds each time.
We’ll get started on Friday, January 1 with a 15 second plank. Good luck!
