Ready to build that core? Having a strong core is an essential component to your sailing performance. With a strong core you can hike longer and harder. Also with a strong core you will find you are less sore after a long day of sailing and you will recover more quickly for your next event. Not only is having a strong core important to your sailing performance but everyday living. With a strong core you can prevent injury, improve your posture, and have more efficient overall movement.
One of the best moves that requires no equipment at all to build your core is the plank. The plank is a move that can be made into various exercises that challenge all the major muscles groups and stabilizers. These exercises improve strength and help you prevent injury. The plank is an exercise you can do anywhere, and it only takes a couple of minutes every day to build your core strength.
In the 30 day plank challenge, you will have fun while building your core strength. Thischallenge only takes a couple of minutes to complete each day. By the end of the 30 days, you will feel stronger and be ready to hike harder and longer! Remember always practice proper form to avoid injury.
