PLC got out in the community on Wed 13th April as part of the ‘Stay Active & Safe’ event at Penistone Skate park.
Luckily the weather was reasonable and there was a good atmosphere with representatives there from Twiggs and South Yorkshire Police along with ourselves and Penistone Church Football offering some activities and information.
Sarah, one of our reception staff and Kieth, a longstanding Volunteer attended the event to represent PLC and took along information about the various activities PLC has to offer and some Dumb bells to ‘How long can you?
So we had some very able participants who, with the various weights of 1.5kg up to 5kg were asked to hold them in different positions for as long as they could.
Best times of the day for holding
1.5kg ~ Lateral straight arm extension …..Goes to Joint winners Alfred and Deacon at @ 26 seconds
2kg ~ Front straight arm extension ….. Alfred @ 41 seconds
3kg ~ Strong man stance ….. Ady – @ 120 seconds With Deacon coming a very close 2nd with 101 seconds
5kg ~ Strong man stance with upwards pulse …… Ady 34 seconds again with Deacon a very close contender! @ 33 seconds ( and maybe a bit of assisstance from Kieth – They were very heavy!)
Then we had some fun !
