Are you ready to Flourish with Fitness throughout the month of November? If so, then it’s time for 30 DAYS of GIVING THANKS and DOING PLANKS!
Plank exercises strengthen the core. Core muscles help to support the body and allow us to use our arms and legs strongly and effectively. Strong core muscles form the foundation for good posture, coordination, and balance. All gross and fine motor skills rely on a stable core.
Remember to practice and encourage proper form with your children/students. Now let’s take a look at the challenge.

COUNTED PLANK EXERCISES
Think of something or someone you’re thankful for, and write it on the calendar each day. If you’re thankful for a person, go above and beyond by telling the person or by writing them a note.
Using the linked fitness calendar, write your initials for each day you complete the routine. At the end of the month, turn in your completed calendar to your PE teacher. Students completing at least 10 days will receive a certificate.
