Ok.. in all honesty - there was some shaking. And groaning. And complaining.
But it was going.
Unfortunately it seems the length of time to hold the plank position increased a little too quickly for my body to keep up. In an effort to hold the plank longer than I was physically able to do - I must have done it wrong. Because I suddenly found myself spending an entire week with some pretty intense lower back pain.
Not good. At. All.
I see to have recovered. And I'm ready to get back on that plank. I am thinking a modified plank challenge this time around. Just holding the position for a set amount of time, only increasing when I feel good about it - not trying to push too far, too fast like the last time around.
Have you ever tried a 30 day plank challenge? Or have you ever tried to exert yourself too soon or too far while exercising and ended up hurting yourself?
