Update on Plank & Wall sit Challenge

Monday, September 26, 2016

Last night I completed Day 14. I'm halfway through already. I had to switch to the plank on my elbows instead of with my arms extended because I was starting to get some bad headaches. I am also using the same schedule to do my wall sit challenge. I am having to slide up the wall a little to be able to hold the pose so long but I'm continuing on. As I get stronger I will try to hold the pose lower again. Last night was 1 min 45 second plank. I really feel like this is making me stronger and more toned. I was able to be on my feet almost all day on Saturday and took a 4 mile walk too. My ankle with has a metal rod and pins in it is doing so much better from the wall sits. I recommend this to any one who has arthritis in their ankle.

    Update as requested. I finished the challenge but it took a little longer than 30 days. It did feel that it was beneficial. I got more toned from doing it. I then moved on to doing 1 minute yoga moves and that was also great for toning. I really got a lot out of doing the boat pose and holding it as long as I could usually could make 1 minute. I need to get back to the toning again. Even if I don't lose pounds from doing it, the toning is well worth it. My trouble area is always my belly and if it is toned up it is a good accomplishment for me.
