The plank-off challenge
Alright here is the challenge.... the plank !!!!!!
Post your time each week and lets just see how we do after one month....two months......christmas ?????
I suppose that this is a personal challenge.... but it is also a challenge against others if you would like it to be. but....BUT to all you testosterone welding MEN out there, some of you are going to be better than us girls, some of you are not !!!!!!!!
* hopefully someone can post the traditional plank picture. I haven't got a clue how to do this !!!! most of you will know the elbows, toes routine anyways
* honesty is a virtue - we will know if you are cheating !!!!
* no rounding up to the nearest minute !!!!!
* Gwammas are allowed to partake
* any other rules need to be approved by me, and only if they help me get better !!!!!!
ok plankers - do it
alright then - this morning 1 minute !!!!! yep really sad, but 5 babies, 49 years old, unfit, over weight, saggy baggy
ITS A START :)
Omg 1 minute, I am suitably impressed. I managed 39 seconds before I collapsed into a sweaty heap.
Can only get better though.
Well done Lizzie Lou, the heat is on !!!!
Good idea, my core strength needs some maintenance.
I did 3m:10s this afternoon.
I'll try to get that up to 5 minutes.
OMG - well thats just blown me and lizzieLou out of the water, but Mike, just watch your back, cos you will be surprised what us girls can do when we get a wee push !!!! LOL
Can someone post rules of the plank (i.e.: proper form)? Planking via standing on tip toes and resting on elbows or toes and hands?
Dr bork bork, I so hope that you want that info for someone else and not yourself !!!!!
I believe the correct form is toes and elbows, well thats what I do !!!
Do we get some grass fed NZ Lamb if we win?
We might be able to organise some gorgeous NZ lamb. However you might have to come and pick it up from here ?????
.....and this is NOT going to turn into some primal man versus woman contest - cos we all know who would win that one !!! LOL
