12 minute plank workout using a stability ball.
Good Monday morning purely fit friends!
We had a fantastic weekend! Saturday was spent playing with our niece celebrating her birthday. Then Sunday was all about baby M and Lori!! We will share a recap of her baby shower later, but it was a lot of fun!
Lori and I have been proud of ourselves that the past 3 mornings we’ve worked out instead of sleeping in. Each morning has been a different 12 minute bodyweight workout, and yep planking is in there too! And today we are sharing a new plank workout.
12 minute interval plank workout using a stability ball.
This workout is made up of some fun exercises that target the whole core.
The single leg ab roll in on the stability ball is a new move we practice from time to time. It’s really challenging and will engage your full body. Your abs will be on fire!
Purely training #68 is a 3 part plank workout.
Equipment: stability ball
Style of workout: 12 minute interval plank workout
Workout focus: core and arms
For each part, set your Gymboss Interval Timer to 8 rounds of 10 sec rest and 20 sec work.
Interval plank home workout that will build strength in the mid section.
Your shoulders and legs will get a great workout too! One thing we love about planks –> they work the full body!
Are you ready to plank it out?
And this workout is pregnancy safe. Lori is in her 2nd trimester (she did this workout at 26 weeks). Follow along with the modifications mentioned in the video and as always listen to your body!
**Update on pregnancy safe – I will only recommend this workout in your 1st trimester to help protect your core even more from getting diastasis recti post partum.
If you are new to planks and working out please take this workout slow and omit moves that feel uncomfortable.
Here is the stability ball plank workout breakdown.
