Well that was awkward. I mean really awkward. But I did it. Only 30 sec per side.

Same here. 30 seconds was about all i could manage before i buckled. I enjoyed the challenge though and will definitely try again!

I was going to post on how to do them and figured everyone would know how to google it . I couldn't decide which website to post for instructions. It's definitely a little awkward, but I think a good one to rotate in every once in a while.

Trying to get back over the 3 minute mark. I keep getting close but can't make it over. 2:40 tonight.

I know right? 5+ hours!? I'm lucky if i can get 2 minutes!

1:30 low plank followed by 1:00, with not one but 2 of our cats deciding that right underneath me is the ideal hang out spot. I swear planking is like ringing the dinner bell for those little buggers.

I have a dog who comes to lick my face and one or more cat that thinks under or on top is the place to be.

I am heading out for a 2 week vacation. I WILL be planking while gone. It is the least I can do....... literally

That's funny! My cat runs to me and does a "noes-to-nose" thing and looks at me like: what are you doing at my level...?

I did almost half an hour core class that included some hard-core planks. That count, right...? Because I don't feel like even thinking about plankin' for the rest of today...

Good job everyone I'm glad to see this thread reached to 3 pages now

Didn't have my watch handy tonight so I just did it til it burned. I switched from regular low plank to side planks and back a few times, and I was surprised at how much longer I was able to last. I guess it really works enough other muscles switching to the side. I'll have to make sure I have a watch handy next time.

No more kids' show. Today I did my morning plank of one minute AND came to the core class
Once I felt how core strength helps me with swimming, I feel more motivated to do those awful planks.

For an entire year???... ugggghhhh
Well you got me since I usually only do abs during weight training and somehow slipped by 3 weeks without.
I will plank at least a minute a day for the remainder of 2016. I also took up rock climbing lately and since I'm already down there will try to follow up with a set of finger tip push ups to strengthen my flimsy forearms. Thanks for this challenge!

Rock climbing in Florida That is a great way to keep fit. My whole family loves it. I would too, if I didn't have to get off the ground. Heights and I are not friends. Where do you live in Sarasota?

I did not keep up with this while I was on vacation. I am feeling a little squishy in the middle. Time to double up and catch up.

Awesome job guys
I decided I need to "sweet-up" my challenge a little bit. Because I am not doing any planks at all :/ Except those at yoga or core class...
So..... If I do 30 planks in 30 days, I will reward myself with something from my Amazon wishlist.
Also, I will buy myself 4 Polish donuts ("paczki") once I complete 30/30. No exceptions.
Let's see how it goes

Nothing fancy. I just keep those stuff in wish list believing I should not spend money on something I don't really need.
Coffee mug with brain anatomy, colorful knee-high socks, brain anatomy poster, couple of Puzzle sets.

How's it going all? I fell off the wagon for a few days, but I got back on today. 2- one minute ones along with my short ab routine.

Happy LEAP DAY!
