1 – 3 minutes of plank every hour on the hour of your waking hours for 24 hours
Not enough of a workout? How about a nice 5 or 10K as a side?
The Spartan Race WODs have become known for their difficulty but we’ve never made gyms mandatory for getting your workout in for the day. The women of Sparta recently had a “drop everything and plank” day where the WOD was to drop and plank for 1 – 3 minutes every waking hour on the hour for a 24 hour period. We blogged about it HERE. So, if you woke up at 8:00 and went to bed at 11:00 PM and planked for two minutes each of those hours, you’d log a whopping 30 minutes of planking for the day.
Women from all over the world hit the floor every hour, regardless of where they were at the time, and some incredible pictures were posted in the all-women’s closed FB group dedicated to Spartan Chicks.
And we’re all set to do it again. Your WOD for Wednesday, August 8th, will be another “Drop Everything and Plank” day. We’re looking for the MOST creative pictures. Not sure what that means? Check out what happened the last time we did this with the ladies. The photo album is HERE. Post your pics on our FB wall and get your friends, family, and co-workers in on the action. It’s never a bad time for some core work.
So get your plank on, Sparta.
