Can training your core for just 6 minutes a day for 2 weeks really make that much of a difference?
It absolutely can!
Since launching the Plankathon – a free 14 day core training program – in 2014, over 20,000 people have worked their way through the challenge. Responding to a survey, many of those who completed it reported significant improvements.

Planking for weight loss?
Not only did it make a measurable difference to their strength in in the plank position, but it had a knock on effect in other more unexpected areas also.
Improved posture, feeling stronger during running and other training, and perhaps most interestingly more inclined to stick to healthy eating after a morning that included a few planks.
Priming your body with a few minutes of strength work first thing in the morning seems to have a similar effect on the mind. It can have the effect of setting your intentions for the day, which then influences your decisions around food and other lifestyle choices that will impact on weight loss.
“A great challenge thats fun to do. Small amount of time in your day to get a flatter tummy and stronger arms. Great fun to do each day and amazing how quickly you see results”Mandy Cooper
