What is the “Plank Challenge” going on in Physical Education Class?
Students holding an elbow plank for 1-minute increments. We will start at 1 minute and practice throughout the year with the goal of being able to hold the elbow plank for up to 5 minutes.
What is an elbow plank? The most common plank is the forearm plank which is held in a push-up-like position, with the body's weight borne on forearms, elbows, and toes.
The Plank Challenge is complete for the 2018-2019 school year. Our students worked hard to complete the challenge.
We are excited to announce that 56 students were able to master the 5-minute plank. Those students will receive a certificate of recognition at the Awards Asembly. Congratulations to the 11 students in 2nd grade; 12 students in 3rd grade; 18 students in 4th grade; and 15 students in 5th grade.
Students can practice over the summer for the 2019-2020 Plank Challenge.
After practicing the plank, you should always stretch your back. The easiest stretch is “Childs Pose”
