Hold the plank pose for 5 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 :-)

cheers guys, I have been planking daily for 6 months building up time gradually, this was something else though, I am not really an advocate of just increasing and increasing time and after the state I was in at the end, I wont be repeating. but its nice to achieve I guess

I was like that at first, then every day I would add 5 sec. And just kept adding a little each time. At one point I could do 5 min, but stopped doing it on a regular basis. Just started again with the 1 min challenge, and now I'm up to 3min 30sec. Almost at the 5 min mark. Keep trying, it will come.
