Have you ever heard of a Plank?
Have you ever done a Plank?
Have you ever done more than one Plank in a row?
Of course you haven’t, because you’re reading this. I know from experience that if you try to do more than one, you will die.
Warning: This exercise is not for those with bad backs (I’m looking at you, Brad) or those with severe weeney-itis (I’m looking at you, Lauren).
3-5 reps? That’s impossible! Who is this trainer? Satan?
Full disclosure: I have always been a weeney. In junior high p.e. class we were given the first ten minutes to run the track. If you ran 4 laps you got an A, 3 = B, 2 =C, etc. My friends and I knew we could walk nearly three laps in nine minutes then hustle for the last minute and almost make it, then beg for the B.
