Happy Friday, Mountaineers!
I hope everyone feels one with the Magiqverse after last week’s Gossmere Tranquility medication challenge. You’re going to need for this week’s challenge. May I present…
Friday Challenge: Ebenguard Discipline
I’d like to thank @OracleSage for the inspiration for this challenge. What exercise better distills the balance between mind and body, the self-discipline of the Ebenguard than … “planks?” Planks are deceptively simple, but in reality very, very difficult. Trust me.
What is a “plank” you ask? It’s an exercise where you hold a posture face down, resting on your feet and elbows with your back kept perfectly straight. A picture is worth a thousand words, so…

Okay, Mountaineers - your challenge is work up to planking for one minute. How often you plank is up to you. “Hahahaha, Augbro! I can already plank for one minute! Challenge: Complete!” you say. Then, sir/madam, if you can already plank for one full (excruciating) minute, your challenge is to increase the duration of your maximum plank time by 30 seconds.
Good luck this week, Mounties!
