Plank Race

Everyone gets in a plank position along a horizontal line. On the “GO” command, the person in the back stands up and runs to the front of the line. As soon as this person gets back in a plunk position, he screams “GO,” and the next person in the back of the line gets up and runs to the front. Since it’s a race, you have to mark the time at the first “go.” Then you mark it again, the time when you covered the whole distance, and someone’s head touches the farthest wall. Whatever time you’ve got, make sure that the next time you do this race, you beat it! A fun variation is when the person who moved from the back of the line gives the front person a high five before getting in a plank.
