Heehee, I am already an experienced planker! I can hold it for 2 minutes. I do side ones and back ones too. Amazing for the core. The cats always try to sit on my back and like Jennie, I get 'help' from the dogs who find it all very interesting....

I'll see how long I can do if I really try!!! I read somewhere that Beyonce can do 5 minutes.
