Gitte Ø 3/7
Holding a plank position properly strengthens your core as well as testing and improving your abdominal endurance.
30 seconds is a good target for beginners to exercise to aim for, and if done with solid form and a well tensed core will make you work relatively hard.
As soon as you break the position, by sagging your hips, raising your bum or moving your arms, you should stop and rest.
30 second plank Challenge rules
- Hold the position for 30 seconds
- Do not break form
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“Alternating raised legs (or raising opposite leg and arm if you really wanna go for it) adds an extra level of challenge and increases the core workout, but also distracts you a bit so you can hold it for longer :D”

Grace C Boy, I am way out of practice! My last record was 87 seconds. That's what I get for taking a 2-month break! I'll get there yet! For 30 seconds, DONE!

Adrieanna P I am taking this challenge longer than others. I had a C-section 12 days ago. So its going to take me a little longer to build up. But I can do this. Day 1 held for 10.8 seconds.
Ana R I'm at day 9 but I will keep this challenge until I can make a 1min plank. Now I'm at 45 seconds

Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
