what's your plank PR?
Just did it for 1:45, thought I was going to collapse
I like to do both, but I might wait till 2-3 minutes before adding weight. One of the great aspects of a real long plank is the mental benefit of pushing yourself at an intensity and duration that other exercises won't recreate.
been doing them weighted for like 1.5 year. started with 10kgs. its very easy to progress at first, i think you could get to about 30kgs in a month or something. get at it m80, its great to do it at the end of a workout, real killer
2 minute with 20 kg on back. Will aim for 1 minute with 30 kg next time and +10 sec every workout.
Where should the plate be rested exactly? i usually put the lower end of the plate just where my boxer ends, but maybe should go higher.
1:47, first time I've ever done one. Pretty cool.
>mfw fighting to keep the tip of my dick off the ground
it basically means trying to round your lower back slightly is the best way I can describe it. People tend to cheat the hell out of planks and are super hyper extended while doing them which makes them much easier.
I love planking, can currently hit 3:30. I want to be able to plank for more than 15:00 at a time, but I can't find any sort of a training program, advice, guidelines, nothing like that online.
can someone please help me achieve my goal?
Kettlebell or barbell weight?
Barbell weights are much easier I find. I've dome 70 seconds with 60kgs on my back. But a 24kg kettlebell is much tougher because the weight isn't distributed. (70s there too)
>THIS IS THE LEAST I CAN DO, AND THE DISCOMFORT I FEEL RIGHT NOW PALES IN COMPARISON TO THAT WHICH THEY'VE EXPERIENCED ON THE BATTLEFIELD -- TRUST ME WHEN I TELL YOU THAT.
Do you think his tone of voice comes from holding the plank for a few hours or would he normally say it that intensely.
>not being able to plank near indefinitely
What the fuck is wrong with you plebs? Plank position was our resting position back in high school wrestling. We looked forward to taking a break to plank while the coach yelled at us about mind over matter.
World record is 4 hours and 26 minutes, get your shit together you fucking casuals.
Can't plank for the duration it takes to drive across a small country? Fucking calling yourself /fit/, disgusting.
