The hardest core workout you’ll ever do

If you follow me on Instagram then you probably saw my post about the plank progression the guys did at practice today, along with the picture of two of the three final guys (out of the 40ish on the team).

Below is the workout. I definitely recommend trying it and seeing how far you can make it through the progression. It’s a great way to build core strength, which as we all know is crucial to having a good stroke. Don’t say I didn’t warn you though … it hurts.

8 seconds middle plank – 8 seconds left side plank – 8 seconds right side plank

5 seconds rest

16 seconds middle plank – 16 seconds left side plank – 16 seconds right side plank

5 seconds rest

32 seconds middle plank – 32 seconds left side plank – 32 seconds right side plank

5 seconds rest

64 seconds middle plank – 64 seconds left side plank – 64 seconds right side plank

5 seconds rest

2:08 middle plank

5 seconds rest

4:16 middle plank

5 seconds rest

8:32 middle plank

In total that comes to about 21 minutes of planking if you manage to make it all the way to the end. A good way to gauge whether or not you’re doing the planks right is if you’re shaking and having a hard time breathing … good luck!
