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.
“Music helps pass the time; end up doing it for minutes at a time. Would do planks in the gym on campus last year, and some of my guy friends would join but quit because I could last longer than they could! Also, Increase time; started out with a solid 20 seconds for 3 or so days. Next, 30 seconds for 3 or so days, then 45 seconds, 55 sec, 1:05, etc. My peak is 2:43. Trying to get back up to that time again!”
