To give a little break to our upper body, we then decided to do the wall sit instead of doing the planks. Again, I also wasn’t sure about this challenge since Daniel mentioned doing planks for his high school football team workouts in the past. As for me, playing soccer since five have really taken a toll on my knee, their are not in the best shape as they used to be. Many soccer players develop this problem, due to the constant running and collision against other players caused trauma. At one point, I wasn’t able to walk for a few days because of my knee. Since It was really difficult for me to walk, I stayed home until I could fully put pressure on my knees again. These thoughts were in my head while I performed this activity. We finally got against the wall so we can get into the sitting position to begin the next exercise. In the beginning, after a few seconds, we had to stop because I noticed that Daniel wasn’t in the correct form, which gave him an advantage over me.
The legs need to be 90 degrees, in order to really feel it in your legs. After we made sure we were both doing the wall sit correctly, we reset the timer, got back into position, and continued with the challenge. This time we both felt the excruciating burn as time passed. We taunted each other, and told one another that we were going to take this one because we can go a lot longer. However, around 30 seconds, not only did I began to doubt myself, but my terrible knees from all the years of playing were crying and burning from the stress I was putting on them.. At one-point, (I began to plead myself to stop begging me to stop so we can start the next challenge because. I knew I couldn’t do plank to save my life, so I kept pushing myself through all the pain, so I can win the entire challenge. Daniel did not look great around the same time as I was thinking to stop.
