THIS IS HOW LONG YOU SHOULD BE HOLDING THE PLANK
Not everyone agrees
As you can imagine, not everyone agrees. Speaking to The Independent, Benji Tiger, a personal trainer at Orange Theory in Florida said, “You should be holding a plank for 30 seconds to a minute.” And if you were to do planking intervals, “holding for 20 seconds each time would be better.”

Veteran strength coach and Men’s Health contributor Dan John suggests holding the plank for no more than 120 seconds. In his book,Can You Go?if you can’t hold a plank for 120 seconds, you’re either a) too fat; b) too weak; or c) doing something wrong in your workouts.
Simply put: a fit, healthy guy should be able to do a two-minute plank, and not for a second longer. “Enough is enough,” he says. “It’s just a plank. More is not better.”
Form is paramount
Let’s pause the stopwatch for a moment. Despite the varying opinions on how long you should hold position, it’s agreed, thankfully, that the most important part of planking comes down to form.
In the press-up position, your feet should be together, arms slightly wider than shoulder width and your weight resting on your forearms. Most importantly, your body should form a straight line and be stiff from head to toe as you brace your abs. The moment your back begins to sag, is the moment you should stop, no matter how long the clock has been ticking.
