A good friend of ours – Annette – has a significant birthday coming up on 7th April 2020. And when her husband – Jeff- asked her what she’d like for her birthday, she said she’d like him to have a six pack. A visible one.
Not being averse to taking on ridiculous challenges, as soon as I heard this I asked if others could join in. Annette and Jeff graciously agreed that the challenge was open to all comers and we were off and running (and crunching…).
I’ll do a separate blog about the health benefits of a six pack – and advice on how to get one. For the moment, suffice it to say that planking is part of our exercise routine.
And the thing about planking is that it can be done almost anywhere. At the airport.
(From flat pack to six pack as Anthony quipped. )
As a group in a pool (this is known as a plankton shot)
While deep sea diving
And even after a run in Reykjavik.
If you’d like to take part in the Six Pack Challenge, or you’ve got any good planking pics, then do get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org; @dtruntheworld (Twitter and Insta) ; https://www.facebook.com/RunTheWorldChallenge
But PLEASE remember :
– If your back, or any other part of your body, starts to hurt while you’re planking, then STOP!
– Don’t plank anywhere dangerous!
