Thursday 12 April 2012

No one man can, for any considerable time, wear one face to himself, and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which is the true one-

Thursdays never seem to arrive quick enough during the week, do they?  There are a million other things to do on any other ordinary Thursday.  Sometimes we like to compare the ingredients in organic brown rice?  Other times there is a Arnica Oil on the market that simply sounds too good to be true.  In the end we consider Thursdays a time to step back and reflect on all the amazing things happening around us…You know what?  It’s “Best Caption Wins Something” time:

The Plan-

The Workout-

Your choice…Either a nice refreshing Rest Day or one of our fave workouts pulled from our “Don’t Stop, Don’t Puke” series here at CultFit HQ?

If you choose the workout?  Well, it’s not much of a workout but rather a nasty little test we like to do from time to time to chart progress amongst our dear followers.

Today’s Top Tip for aspiring fitness albóndigas:  You can learn more watching someone walk and performing a plank than you can HSPU’s or prone running.

The Test:  Hinge Walk Out to a High Push Up Plank…Feet together, Hinge, Walk your Hands out to a High Plank Position, Head in a neutral position and actively pushing through the floor with your delicate little hands.

Anything less than three minutes and you fail our test.  There is no amount of crunches, ab mat situp’s, yoga, core blast, 6 weeks to a 6 pack routines you can do to prepare for this today.

If at anytime you lose stability in your upper body, STOP.  If your hips drop, STOP.  If you start building tension in your neck, STOP!!!  If you seriously want to mess yo self up disregard the previous notes!?!

Hinge, Walkout, High Plank…How hard could it be?


By all means give our test a go and see where you stand.  Some glaring weaknesses will present themselves after 30 seconds…Most importantly do this safely and ENJOY!!!

    Alright, I’m in, I’m going to try this tomorrow. Just to clarify, I’m going to attempt to hinge, walk into plank, come back to standing as many times as possible (with good form) for 3 minutes…like this:

    I’ll keep you posted on how it goes….

      Hinge, walk out and stay in the High Plank for as long as possible. That dude does it spot on…See how far you get in the Plank Hold and we’ll see where to go from there. Simple movement that can become infinitely harder the more you add in. Good luck and lets shoot for three plus minutes!

  4. I will do the high push-up plank tomorrow before my spinning class. I’m hoping I can do it for 3 minutes!!

  5. Ok. I admit it. I was too lazy to read the number….

  6. Amanda says:

    Lazy person fact is 100% accurate with me. I guess I wasn’t into smelling that rose.

  7. LOL I totally glazed over that number…oops

  8. Janet says:

    *lol* I’d like the dog-office-chair exercise, please. 😉

    In America, dog walks you. Can he do that plank for me also? Either way, challenge accepted.

  11. […] Since I asked for new ab workouts to challenge me, CultFit (an amazing blogger that I suggest you start to follow) gave me an ab test to try out yesterday to see where I stack.  His instructions: […]

    I like the video of the child running and the seals running after him – every time. It’s so cute! The boy’s newest pets.
