Try This 2-Minute Plank Test to Measure Your Overall Fitness

If you can hold an abdominal plank position for at least two minutes, it’s a sign that you’re fairly fit. If you cannot, you're likely lacking in core strength, which is important for overall movement stability and strength.

Being unable to hold a plank for two minutes may also indicate that you're carrying too much weight and may benefit from shedding a few pounds. For a boost of inspiration, take a look at the following video featuring George Hood, the current Guinness World Record holder for longest-held abdominal plank. He nabbed the record by holding plank position for a staggering 1 hour, 20 minutes, and 7 seconds. The prior record for longest time in abdominal plank position was 50 minutes and 11 seconds by Richard Hazard.

After suffering for over 25 years with stomach aches, cramping and general discomfort after each meal I discovered nutrition on a higher level. Living a very active lifestyle I was always reading, learning, taking classes and going to seminars to learn more about nutrition. Though I do not have a "formal" certification or degree in Nutrition I do have extensive knowledge in the subject for which I have been studying for over 30 years. It is my life's passion now to help others who may be experiencing some of the pain that I was suffering and what I continue to learn about Nutrition, Exercise and Mental Balance. I have a question for you, What is Your Nutrition IQ? I will help you learn the answer to that here on my blog. Here is to your feeling better and balanced. Thanks for reading this and share my blog with those you care about that may be suffering or wanting to feel better.
