Workout I Did: Rowing and Planks

One of the best things about having awesome business partners who work out a lot is getting inspired for my own workouts after seeing what they’ve done. We share our workouts all the time here, but we recently joined Viber and have a Fit Bottomed Girls public chat going over there. We’re always chatting about our workouts, our eats, our aching muscles and recovery days, and sometimes just being goofy and using the awesome and hilarious stickers they’ve got over there. Go follow us for a behind-the-scenes look at all things FBG. In the meantime, here’s the rowing workout I did that was inspired by Jenn!

I modified this from what Jenn posted because I couldn’t remember the plank protocol, but I was super glad I did. Turns out, even though the planks were hard, her original workout called for push-ups every 10 seconds during the planks, starting from 3 minutes, 2 minutes and 1 minute. I’ll have to try that for next time! It is a reminder though that no matter what workouts we post here, you can always do them to your level! If something is challenging, throw in an extra break or a longer break. If something is too easy, throw in an extra set, add some weight or go through it again. These workouts are suggestions; make them your own and own them.

  1. Great ideas! I also love plank exercises and incorporate them into my workouts many times during the week. I definitely think a strong core is essential! I love the traditional elbow plank hold as well as the straight arm plank with leg lifts. I held a plank for 2 minutes 6 seconds today! I used to be able to only do it 15 seconds when I started! 🙂 🙂
