This work out “5 Minute xc Planks” has been included in your summer training plan. This is for everyone. We have been doing this as part of our traditional training for years.  They do help produce results.

This diagram AND link (below for the girls) are excellent, you should have no issue understanding it. These make a difference – this is important core training. Not all cross country is running. It is about building your body parts to strengthen and also to avoid injury.

This diagram refers to what we (team and coaches) call ” 5 minute planks.” 



IN ADDITION, the girls are to incorporate these into their training- you can and should alternate these with the 5 minute planks. You can alternate days or do another plan can be to do one in the morning and one in the evening. These do not have to be done at your practice.
