Challenge 9 - Memory Plank
Place 8 small objects on the floor in a circle shape then get into a press-up position with your hands in the middle of the circle. Somebody should then say an object which you must tap with your hand while staying in the press-up position. The person will then add an object, you now have 2 objects to tap. The person will add an object again and again. How many objects can you tap in the correct sequence while staying in that press-up position?
Make it harder
- Make the circle bigger
- Reach across the midline of your body e.g. right hand touches objects on the left, left hand touches objects on the right
Make it easier
- Make the circle smaller
- Allow your knees to rest on the floor when in the press-up position
