Catherine W Day 8 - rest! I'm good for that!
This challenge will help you to hold the plank pose from 20 seconds to 5 minutes in 30 days! Plank exercises are a popular element of isometric training, which involves contracting your muscles against stationary resistance. It will work you upper abs, your lower abs, your obliques and your lower back. You will feel your core getting stronger. It is hard, it works your entire body, but the results are noticeable!

Alex D answered the question should a plank be done on elbows or extended arms? ??
As I understand it, a plank is on your elbow and a raised plank is on your hands. Hope that helps :) enjoy the challenge.
