    then you will need to be crafty lol my advice is to get someone to talk to you while you do it about something interesting. i seriously used to struggle doing 1 min planks when i was studying personal training. i freakn hate them so i dont practise. i sent my personal trainer the plank variations for fun one day and he made me do some. so there i am planking and waving my arms and legs around like simon says on drugs. several minutes later i realise i am still planking lol so the moral is, the brain is the weakest muscle. distract yourself instead of clock watching. also if it starts hurting stop. regardless of how short a time you have done it.

    It's really about consistency but technique-wise you should aim for a straight line between the back of your head, middle of the shoulder blades and your coccyx - all with a reasonable neutral lumbar position. Any deviation from this and you're essentially just reinforcing poor posture.

    A good tip is to have someone rest a broomstick along your back. If it is in contact with all 3 points at the same time then you're golden.

    Not sure about any record for it but I got to 25 minutes with a group of other coaches a few years back. It definitely helps to have others to push you! But, irrespective of time, the important thing is the quality.
