Profile pic: Worthster Challenge created by:
Worthster

Challenge for: all

Challenge goal: improve general fitness

Challenge targets: core

Level: suitable for all competitors

Age: any age

What does this challenge involve?

How long can you continuously hold the plank position for? Sound an easy exercise / workout? - you won't be saying that when your whole body is shaking! One tip before we get started: post video evidence if you want to be taken seriously and avoid the wrath of your fellow competitors.

Right, let's get started. Lie face down on a mat or floor. Raise yourself up on your forearms and your toes. Feet should be about shoulder-width apart. Hold your body in a straight line. Don't cheat by sticking your bum in the air! Go champ.......

The winner of this fitness challenge will be the person who holds the Plank Position, correctly, for the longest continuous length of time. This exercise is a great way to test your core strength.
