    Thanks for your support, today went better! Do you do your pushups before or after planks? I do mine first, rest a minute, then go into planks. I do these at the end of my workouts, I was thinking when my arms were shaking that lifting weights prior to planks could be making them harder.

    Hello my fellow awesome plankers!

    My goal is 6 minutes. Side planks 90 seconds with 15 dips, goal is 2 minutes with 30 dips. I'm going to go with 400 minutes for straight arms and 250 minutes for sides.

    1st 5 minutes straight arm, 3 minutes straight arm, 90 seconds 15 dips each side.
    2nd 5 minutes straight arm, 3 minutes straight arm, 90 seconds 15 dips each side.
    3rd 5 minutes straight arm, 3 minutes straight arm, 90 seconds 15 dips each side.
    4th 5 minutes straight arm, 3.5 minutes straight arm 90 seconds 15 dips each side
    5th 5minutes straight arm, 4 minutes straight arm, 90 seconds each side 15 dips
    6th 5.15 minutes straight arm, 4 minutes straight arm, 90 seconds each side, 20 dips
    7th 5 minutes 30 seconds straight arm, 4 minutes 30 seconds straight arm, 100 seconds each side, 20 dips

    Just curious, what do you guys do when planking? I stream music for free and usually pick albums on YouTube vs. videos but set up two videos today and counted time according to the seconds the music played (it shows seconds of the songs). I really need to stop listening to music all the time when I work out, if I watched educational shows I'd be pretty darned smart after working out every day for over a year! It seems like as soon as the first song ends a long commercial comes on that you can skip after 5 seconds but my arms are busy.
