All You Need Is a Chair
Today’s workout is a strength-y one. Not only are we targeting your core strength with an extended high-plank hold, but we’re also working those tricep muscles by adding in chair dips.
How it works: set your timer for 12 minutes. When the clock starts, find a high plank (make sure to stack your hands directly under your shoulders and keep your pelvis tucked). If a high plank is too challenging for today, consider substituting in a knee plank.
Chances are, you won’t be holding the plank for 12 minutes straight. SO, every time you come down from the plank, head over to your chair and do 10 chair dips. I made a few demo videos of chair dips to help you out: easiest version, intermediate version, and advanced version.
A couple ways to record your score in the comments might include:
- How long was your max plank hold?
- What was your total number of plank-hold sets?
- (If you used this WOD as an opportunity to work on dips…) What was your total number of chair dips?
