#36: Challenge of the week: Side plank oblique twist

I like to give myself a weekly challenge in order to stay motivated. There are 7 levels for every challenge, so everyone can join in. Feel free to modify the challenges so they fit your personal needs. Remember always to listen to your body, don’t push yourself too hard but keep moving. Doing only these challenges is not a balanced way to get or stay fit. If you have doubts about exercises, or your body, always ask a specialist for advice!

This exercise trains a lot of muscles at once, and that is why I like it. When you are not able to do a normal side plank, you might want to replace this challenge for a side plank challenge instead and go for minutes instead of reps. When you are able to do a good plank, you can ad the twist. When you are afraid your posture is not right, ask someone to observe you and five you feedback. It is important to align your body in a straight line, so do not drop your hips, nor stick them in the air.

level 1: 70 reps / 3.5 minutes
level 2: 140 reps / 7 mintes
level 3: 210 reps / 10.5 minutes
level 4: 280 reps / 14 minutes
level 5: 350 reps / 17.5 minutes
level 6: 700 reps / 21 mintes
level 7: 1000 reps / 28 minutes
