    Today I had some planks "hidden" in the HIIT workout. Then tried the 3 min "perfect plank" video, but was pretty much shaking. Counting all mixed planks, it must be more than 3 mins...

    Oct 10 - 2 min - 2 x 3 x 20 sec - following the link (MFP blog article on better planks) I tried to apply rules #1 & #2 and boy does it feel harder but more satisfying. This will be my go-to now. Shorter bursts and squeezing in glutes as well.

    Thanks for that. I had read about RKC planks a while back, but didn’t apply them ever since. Well times have changed :-)
    Thanks for sharing.
