Sylvia C it's sooooooooooooooooo hard!! Max 3 minutes.... :(
This is a challenge for those of you looking to put your abdominal strength to the test. The plank pose is a great exercise to work those abdominal muscles and will build endurance in your back and stabilizer muscles –Check this site out http://www.ehow.com/way_5189133_plank-exercise-routine.html for more info on the benefits. Hold the plank for 5 minutes or longer maintaining correct posture to complete this challenge. For a great demo of the plank pose visit: http://www.exercise4weightloss.com/transverse-abdominal-exercises.html#plank_pose . This challenge is more difficult than it looks, so if you cannot complete it first time, practice every day slowly building up your time... Good luck :-)

“I piggybacked this challenge to day 30 of the 30 Day Plank Challenge - it was hard but I made it! Shaking all the way. My advice is to breathe, breathe, breathe while you're in position - and stretch your arms and shoulders when you're done.”
