Plank Challenge Rules
To properly test your core strength and join the plank challenge you must follow these rules:
- Start in the proper plank position, with your forearms on the ground and feet shoulder-width apart. In this position, only the balls of your feet and both forearms should be touching the ground.
- Have one stack of plates (10lbs, 5lbs, 2.5lbsx3, 5lbs, and 10lbs) just outside of either forearm and within reach.
- Use your opposite arm to reach across, pick up one plate at a time, and bring it to the opposite side of your plank making a new stack.
- Making one new stack on each side, or across and back to the start position, equals one rep.
- DO NOT raise your hips too high and take your core out of the movement.
- DO NOT twist your body and turn it into a side plank. Try to keep your hips square.
- If you drop a plate or it hits the ground before making a new stack, you start the challenge over.
- If the plate stack falls, you fail and start over.
