Crank Your Plank Challenge aka CYPC //  I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about it.  If not, you can read more about it here + here + here.  Our week one Kaia Amplify BRIK challenge was CYPC.  The goal was to get to a 6 minute plank hold.  All while keeping form.

Welllllll……I fucking did it!!  Yeahhhh.  Tuesday morning we warmed up and Coach Mallory  announced it was time for CYPC.  I promised myself that I WOULD NOT give up.  Really thinking, bitch you better beat 4:40 (from week #5).  Then Mallory called “TIME!”  Not me, she did.  I almost died, don’t get me wrong.  But I did it.  I feel like I graduated the CYPC…haha.  I’m so beyond proud of myself.  This is HUGE.


Check out my progress:

  • Week #1 – 1:40
  • Week #2 – 2:57
  • Week #3 – 3:17
  • Week #4 – 4:02
  • Week #5 – 4:40
  • Week #6 – 6:00


At week #5, I seriously thought there was NO frickin way on earth I could get to 6 minutes.  It was all in my mind and I knew it.

Do you know how damn long 6 minutes really is?

Here’s a list of things that take less than 6 minutes to do:

  • shower
  • paint my nails
  • blow dry my hair
  • fill my car gas tank
  • empty the dishwasher
  • fold a load of laundry
  • listen to 2 George Strait songs

I even timed myself making my morning smoothie.  I can do it, start to finish in 3 minutes.  That’s 1/2 of the CYPC.

Yes, I watched the clock while I did all of these things today…lol.  Strange, yes.  But I’m just in awe.  Haha.  For reals.

OK, OK, enough.  You get it, I know.

Remember when I wrote here that I would do some kind of celebrating?  Well, I did!!

I broke down and bought my first pair of Lululemon pants.  Life changing.  You get what you pay for.  They are by far the best pair of pants I’ve ever worked-out in.  The high waist delivers!  These pants are so smooth with the perfect amount of compression.  Honestly, I could sleep in these bad boys.   Wish I wouldn’t have waited this long.  I’m no longer a Lululemon virgin 🙂

Happy Hump Day!  Can you believe the week is half over already?
