The plank is a great exercise for strengthening your core. We challenge you to work your way up to completing the posted variation(s) of the plank for 30 to 60 seconds 3 to 5 days of the week.Remember, a quality plank is better than a plank with bad form held for a long time. A modification for the straight legs plank is bent-knee plank. The key to success is to keep the back straight and core tight. Push ups and pull ups will help you improve your core strength, which can help improve your plank.
