    they have a white board at my gym with the longest or whatever of different things. one side for men, one side for women. i will read it when i go next. google will prob give you the world record if you ask.
    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.
    it's prob alot easier with good technique too.

    The current world record (according to Guinness World Records) for the plank position is 1 hour 20 minutes and 5.01 seconds, set in Naperville, IL on 3 December 2011 by 54 year old George Hood.[9]

    3:20 here. I'm planning on increasing the time with 10 sec every 4-7 days since my goal is the 5 min mark and I don't want this to take ages.

    I do the following everyday: left side plank - 2:20, rest - 2 min, right side plank - 2:20, the same rest, 3:20 front plank
