Winnacunnet HS Student Athletes Compete in 2nd Annual
Hampton Physical Therapy ‘PLANK TIL YOU TANK’ Challenge 

Kicking off the Columbus holiday weekend, on Friday, October 5th, Hampton Physical Therapy’s exciting ‘Plank Til You Tank’ challenge was held for the second time at Winnacunnet High School. The WHS winter sports teams showed off their endurance skills with one of the most challenging core stability exercises known as ‘Planking’.

Hampton Physical Therapy hosted ‘Plank Til You Tank’ as not only a way of supporting local youth, but also educating the benefits of Planking. The Plank is one of the most effective total body moves that strengthens your core, legs, and upper body. Plank can even help prevent injury! Risk factors of low back are thought to begin in school aged children and therefore research suggests it is “desirable for children and adolescents to perform moderate-to-high intensity dynamic core exercises during physical education warm-up to improve trunk and core muscular endurance.” Core stability exercises have been found to be more effective than general exercise in the prevention of low back pain.

Winnacunnet winter sports teams competed against each other to win $500 for their Team! The team that averaged the longest plank took the prize! Congratulations go to the WHS Boys X-Country Team and Girls Varsity Soccer Team who were each awarded $500!
