4 Minutes, 28 Days – A New Body!

Everyone who wants to stay in shape and have a toned, fit body needs to exercise regularly and follow a healthy diet plan. However, most people want a quick fix and always try to find the easiest way to achieve this without much effort, partly due to the busy schedules in our everyday lives.

The exercise we recommend here will help you achieve those quick results and get the body you desire in just 28 days. With the plank you’ll only need to spare four minutes of your busy schedule every day and you’ll get a new, toned body in less than a month.

The plank is a powerful exercise which strengthens your arm, leg and buttock muscles and melts the excess fat better than any other exercise. It’s a bit difficult at first but once you get the hang of it you’ll see that it’s simple and easy.

Plank challenge

You’ve probably heard about the plank challenge, it’s taking the world by storm. It’s a four weeks exercise plan in which you start by holding in the plank position for 20 seconds and gradually increase your time until you reach the maximum you can. On the last day of your challenge you need to perform a 4 minute plank. It may sound impossible at first but you’ll see it’s very much possible.

What’s the correct plank position?

First you need to learn the correct plank position because if you’re not doing it correctly you won’t get the desired results. You need to rest your body weight on your hands and toes while keeping a straight line with your back. Take a deep breath when you start, and squeeze the abdominals. Make sure your weight is properly distributed so you can keep the balance and strain the glutes.
