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
