Stacey T These are a regular part of my routine now, had to work up to them and i wont say they are easy but achieved and achievable!!
The plank is an exercise which primarily serves to improve core strength and endurance, a minute is the next target to aim for after completing a 30 second plank hold.
Aim to keep a consistent body position, in a straight line, looking ahead of yourself, as soon as you break this position you must stop the timer.
One minute plank Challenge rules
- Maintain the plank position for at least 60 seconds
- Keep the pose consistent, as soon as your body starts to move, sag or raise, the plank pose has been broken
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“Watch you form guys - 1minute doesn't mean a thing if you have all your weight in your low back, neck and shoulders! Pull abs in, press through forearms (or hands depending on the type of plank you are doing). Good luck!”

Martine F I do the plank after a 50 crunches challenge. It is always so much harder after doing core and abs exercises.
Emma W Day 3 Found really tough today especially after 30 minutes resistance and push ups. A couple of seconds rest but got straight back to it
Martine F encouraged this.
Laura B Just a query but the profil picture - isn't her back a little too arched?? Looks like she's been doing a plank for too long and is sagging down......I was always pushed to have my legs / bum / back flat and in a line, not the lower part of it al.
