5-Minute Plank Challenge


This 5-Minute Plank Challenge is really a quick, short, total body Move-For-Joy session. Don’t worry, we aren’t holding a plank for 5-minutes. We do a variety of different kinds of planks with little breaks in between to target your core, shoulders and glutes. It will leave you feeling energized & strong.

Make it Playful With Music

Make your Move-For-Joy session more fun with music. Links to a few of my favorite playlists are below. Use mine or create your own.


Move For Joy Suggestions

  • Remember, you can switch out any cardio/HIIT interval for a dance party--your body can burn up to 300 calories/hour dancing--so if burpees aren't your thing, bust a move.

  • Make this Move-For-Joy session your own by speeding up or slowing down your pace to the beat of the music. Varying your speed of abs or lunges or whatever move makes it more fun and the variety keeps it interesting. 

  • Do your own favorite move. If something I'm doing in the video doesn't work for your body, do something else. As long as you are moving you are doing your body good!
