Happy Birthday #PlankADay June 20, 2012

June 20, 2012 marks the 1st anniversary of #PlankADay.  That was the day of the very first #PlankADay tweet. #PlankADay started as a commitment to better abs between me and Mike Bauman. In the days and weeks following that first tweet, dozens of our Twitter peeps joined us, then their peeps joined them, and so on, until 1 year later we have had 3,496 plankers on 6 continents who have made the commitment to #PlankADay!

To celebrate this fun and rewarding community of hard CORE plankers, Mike and I are vowing to Plank Around The Clock on June 20.  We will plank (and tweet it!) once every hour of the day for 24 straight hours starting at 1AM Eastern Standard Time!!! Join us for all or some of the fun by planking every hour for as many or as few hours as you’d like on June 20.  Who’s in????

For fun, check out our Twitter streams–  @DrSherryPagoto and @mbfgmike –on June 20 from 1am to 12:oopm which we will exclusively devote to documenting our Plank Around The Clock tweets, complete with fun #PlankADay memories and happenings over the last year. (I suspect the 3am and 4am tweets will be the most interesting!!)   Please give us plenty of support as we Plank Around the Clock in celebration, we are gonna need it!!

Haven’t joined #PlankADay yet?  Check it out here!

Happy Birthday #PlankADay and many thanks to all you plankers who make doing exercise soooo much fun!

    So amazing..its been 1 yr. for me 6/29 that I started planking..I will never stop..it is truly hard core…Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Mike & Sherry..you have made Planknation what it is today!!!! YAY!!!

  2. SO COOL!!! I love #plankaday and all the support we give one another!!! BTW that is also World Refugee Day! Any way you could incorporate a blue key into one of your hourly planks? We’ll do doing a tweetathon from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. that day! I have a Blue Key you could use or of course you could order one OR download a sticker from this site: http://bluekeyblog.org/ Anyway, happy almost 1st bday #plankaday!

      That’s a great idea Paula! I will definitely incorporate the blue key into a plank! Great way to promote a good cause! It will be a HARD CORE birthday, that’s for sure!!!

      I’M in. My Key is on the way! Definitely something worthy of the Planknation getting behind.

    Congratulations on a great venture, it’s all about getting people fit and you’ve nailed it. I’d been wondering about the hashtag plankaday, so when I received an official welcome on Twitter it all feel into place. I’m happy to be a part of the plankaday community and I can’t promise to plank on the hour tomorrow but I’ll try where I can.
