Anyway, after PT I stopped by the store to speak to the manager because I was scheduled to open. Opening shifts are off limits to me because that's when you mix all the 5 gallon buckets of paint for contractors and I, for the foreseeable future, will not be lifting any 5 gallon buckets. When I told him that I was now doing planks he said, "I know how to do planks, I can hold one for a minute," and I had to contain myself.
You see my store manager is about 6' 1" and weighs in at about 265 lbs. I am being very kind when I say he has some girth. Now this doesn't mean I don't believe him when he says he can hold a plank for one minute. It's just that I suspect he might have a little mid-section assist going on. I just have to remind myself that even if his abdomen is only 1/4 inch off of the mat, for some people in a quarter inch can be as much as a mile.
