PLANK LEADER BOARD



Ever since I broke the seven and a half minute plank barrier, I've been getting a lot of requests from my readers to share my tips for holding a longer plank.  I wrote a blog post about it awhile back, you can read about it here.  In a period of about six months, I went from a one minute plank to more than a seven minute plank by doing it every single day.  If I can do it, so can you. It just takes a daily commitment, time and patience.


I thought it would be fun to start a Running with Ollie plank leader board.  Send me your continuous plank times and a picture of your stop watch to runningwithollie@gmail.com. You can even add the Plank Leader Badge to your website or blog to show off to all your friends. I will keep a running list of the  top 20 plank times that will include your name, your plank time and your website or Twitter handle (if applicable).  Let's have a friendly competition to push ourselves to hold it up a little longer. If you are new to planking, check out my blog post for some tips to hold your plank longer! 

Can you beat any of these times? The plank leader board is officially closed but I'd love it if you would leave your best plank time in comments!!! Happy Planking!



 
 
How to get on the plank leader board:
The plank leader board is now closed. Please leave your plank time in the comments.
1. Make sure you are following Running with Ollie blog by clicking "Follow with Google Friend Connect" on the right side bar.
2. Submit your best time and photo of your stop watch/timer to runningfordummies@gmail.com or tweet me your picture and time @gealenders.  (I'll retweet and follow you).
3. Be sure to include your name, your website and/or your twitter handle (if applicable) so I can link back to you.
4. Copy one of the plank leader badges HERE and add to your site (if applicable).

It is easy to show off your mad planking skills to your friends and followers.  Go HERE to for the HTML code to copy a plank leader badge to your site.
