    clarification on Reverse Plank Kicks ?

    Looking for some clarification on a particular move.
    The daily dare for Reverse Plank Kicks doesn't match
    the Video Library entry for Reverse Plank Kicks.
    Is the dare for more of a reverse plank tuck or something ?

    vs.

    (Love this site, big fan, thanks for everything you do).

    That's a good question. Tbh I've never watched the video in the library and basically did it like the illustration for the Daily Dare showed it. A reverse plank where you draw your knee to your chest/hip/torso/whatever and then kick forwards.

    Maybe Damer could shed some light on this

      I know the move called a 'reverse plank kick' in the library as a reverse plank leg raise and the 'reverse plank kick' in the DD as a reverse plank donkey kick.
      All exercises have shifting names.

      With most Darebee, I stick with 'if in doubt stick with the picture on the sheet'.

        Teraya thank you for raising this here. As Io6 said, please go with the picture. Everything we publish goes through a lengthy three-month process of testing and refinement (the DDs about three-four weeks). That process involves many eyes and minds and opinions and changes and we are still refining it all so we all have a common understanding of everything. What is a leg raise to a martial artist is a "kick" to the dancers and gymnasts in our team. It's taking time to internally standardise everything because we have also upped the pace at which we work. Bear with us and thank you for being here.

          Great point about your background informing your terminology Damer , hadn't even considered that angle! Thanks!

            Damer Nihopaloa Io6 Thanks. I'll place a preferred weighting on the given picture/illustration going forward.
            Terminology differences are indeed common, and that's true in many other industries as well, it seems.
            I appreciate the ongoing efforts for standardization and understand the depth of effort that sort of thing requires.
            With varying terms, even if most variations are acceptable, it can be difficult to ensure they're used consistently.
            I'm sure I'll have more questions as I get further into all of this, so I'll have to put some more in the tip jar !!
