    I’d like to work it up to 5min. For that I’m going to start at 2min and add seconds to it progressively.

    5 : 2’ high
    6 : 2’ high
    7 : 2’05” low
    8 : 2’10” high
    9 : 2’15” high

    10’30”/60’

    Try mixing positions. For instance I do 5 minutes at a time but generally don’t do more than 30 seconds in a single position. I will start with a forearm plank, then transition to left side then right side then back to forearm or straight arm planks without stopping. Each position lasts 30 seconds or a minute until I reach the 5 minute mark. Then I’ll stretch or do something different and come back and do another 5 minute set. I call it a mixed plank.

    This morning I did my first five minute set then did a HIIT cardio session then went back and did the last 5 minute set.

    Could help you to increase your times.
