    Why even bother with a challenge like this. Work up to a 3 minute plank, anything over 3 minutes you are on a diminishing return. When you have achieved that move on to a harder exercise like an L-sit, HLR or elbow lever.

    PBF is meant to be about efficiency

    Don't give up, move to a harder variation.

    A parallel would be chronic cardio vs sprints, you achieve more during the short high intensity sprint session than in a long cardio session. Why do a 10 mins plank when 1 min L-sit or elbow lever would be more effective.
