“The Planche” – Information/First Attempt

Information about “The Planche” according to wikipedia: A Planche is a skill in gymnastics in which the body is held parallel to the ground, giving the illusion of floating. It is a move that requires a great deal of strength and balance.

According to the following website, these are the simple steps to master the planche: http://www.livestrong.com/article/30894-planche-pushups/

Step 1

Assume a tuck planche position and begin to slowly extend your legs out behind you.

Step 2

Start with 10 seconds intervals and work up to a full 60 seconds of holding yourself with your legs straight in the air at the same height as your hips and shoulders.

Step 3

Bring your legs together until you can hold a full planche position for 60 seconds.

My first attempt took place at school with my fellow pier Emmett Richmond. I attempted first while he recorded. I attempted but failed as i held a planche position for only 1 second, which to me is pretty embarrassing ! The Video of this will be attached to this blog post as soon as possible and my later blogs will show my progress with this skill.

Learning Styles

There are many learning styles which have many brought upon by many people in our world. The main types of learning styles include:

  • Visual
  • Spatial
  • Aural
  • Verbal
  • Physical
  • Logical
  • Social
  • Solitary

Out of the vast range of learning styles above i believe i use Logical and Solitary as it suits me the best. The learning intention of this topic is to determine and develop your understanding of your learning style.

A skill i would like to do is a “Full Planche Handstand”. This skill can be learned through Visual and¬†Physical techniques which i do not use¬†effectively.

A video that would help me do this is as followed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U96geCcNM4k
