Re: Tabata planks

Our affiliate sometimes uses a Tabata plank sequence as a finisher after WOD. I disagree that Tabata planks are a waste of time, but I definitely agree that they're not really productive as a main WOD.

An example of what we will sometimes (and, we're talking about maybe once per month here) do:

20 on, 10 off of:
  1. full arm plank ("up" position of a pushup)
  2. down plank ("down" position of a pushup)
  3. full plank position, lift left arm and right leg off of floor
  4. then switch arms & legs
  5. elbow plank
  6. in same position, lift left arm and right leg off of floor
  7. then switch arms & legs
  8. full arm plank
