Hello, people! It is Independence Day! All of us have different ways of celebrating it. It has always been our aim to make India healthier and fitter. And that is why for this 70th Independence Day we have planned to do a 70-second plank challenge. We will be doing an FB live in which we at TheHealthSite.com, will be planking for 70-seconds. By doing this challenge, our sole motive is to encourage exercise in your daily routine and let more and more people know about the benefits of regular exercising.
We have all grown up listening to the saying health is wealth, but in our daily lives do we actually make time for some bit of exercise or yoga? We barely do any stretching! 9 to 10 hours of continuous sitting and unhealthy diet is only shortening our life span. Even a little bit of exercise in a day along with a healthy diet goes a long way!
We will be performing this challenge on the 14th of August at 4 pm. Let us see how many of us can plank for 70 seconds. You can join us on our FB live.
Benefits of planking:
Planking is a core strengthing exercise and stresses on multiple muscle groups at the same time:
It will give you a toned belly as planking helps build your core muscles. Planking also reduces back pain and makes you flexible.
It is great for lifting up your mood instantly as it stretches and relaxes muscle groups that become stiff.
Planks will also improve your posture and balancing skills and make your abs firmer.
So what are you waiting for? Don’t forget to join us on August 14 at 4 pm for the #70for70 planking challenge on our The Health Site Facebook Live. Let us know if you can beat this 70- second planking challenge!
