12 minute stability ball plank workout 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.

Style of workout:  12 minute interval plank workout

    Thank you SO much for this workout! I was looking for something that combined ab work and my stability ball AND would be safe for my 27-week pregnant belly. This is perfect!

  5. I love planks! My favorite short-in-a-hurry workout at home. I have a stability ball, and never use it. I am doing this workout when I need to take a break later this morning. Thanks for the great ideas!
