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?

Notes:

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!!!
