    how long can you do the plank?

    hey,
    I'm 14 and i was jsut doing the plank after my core session, and i was just wondering how long you guys/ gals can do the plank. I just did it for 5 minutes after a hlaf hour session and then for a further 2 minutes after a minute rest. Is this any good or should I do it for longer?

    5 minutes is darn good, but this is easier for slender folks, especially teenagers. How much do you weigh?

    I can go 2 - 3 minutes max. But I'm old.

    Plank

    5 mins is my best on an inverted bosco ball for extra balance work. Try alternate leg raises from the plank position and side planks. Our Friday challenge was 60 mins over a 24 hr period.

    By the way World B 60 as of Sept3.

    I never went for a world record plank lol, so honestly I have no clue. Without training beforehand, I wouldn't even guess more than 2 minutes, but I'll have to see. Other than moral victory, why are you doing this? lol

    I hold the plank position every day -- I have actually started having all of my classes do it as well!! In class we hold regular plank for 1 minute in the beginning of class, and then at the end we do 30 seconds plank, 30 seconds side plank, 15 seconds plank, 30 seconds other side plank, 15 seconds plank for a total of 2 minutes. On my own at home I usually do that later at least once a day - sometimes holding each position a little longer.

    Stacey Lei Krauss of Willpower & Grace has started a "world plank" campaign -- check it out....

    Blindside -- if you are holding it for that long...make sure you are using perfect form! Sometimes it is easier to hold it longer if you are not aligned Keep up the great work!!

    Not sure how long, but it feels like I could do it for a long time. So I started doing single leg lifts while I was in the plank position and would alternate till I was tired.

    Here's a little something that I do and Im sure that it would help improve your health and fitness tone and body.
    Here it is: TruthAA

    Dont slow down, just set your mind to it, move forward and in time you'll see yourself in a better shape. Personally, from my own experience, seeing myself toner only gives me more encouragement to keep moving forward.

    With Best of Hope,
    Rusty
