Episode 149 – You vs You – measure your fitness transformation

Today’s #AskEvro Show question of the day relates to personal fitness transformation and is: “How many minutes is the standard for planking (a core workout exercise)?”

A good benchmark for athletes doing prone planks is probably around 3 to 4 minutes – which is an indicator for really good core stability for most non-contact sport athletes.

To give you a quick story when we were doing our last combine trials for the Philippine Volcanoes national rugby team one of my mates actually hit well over 5 minutes for his continuous planking time, so I’d say that’s pretty good for his overall core strength and stability – but then again he’s an international athlete so a high performance result would be expected of him – that is, a different standard applies for him (and many high performance athletes) as compared to the general population.

For you?
