Thank you!
I don't have a problem holding it for a minute or so but to do a ton of them would kill me:)

The rest of the exercises are suppose to be 3 sets of 15 reps. You hold the plank for however long you can and that's the one set. You then do it 2 more times in the workout

I don't think that one exercise move is meant to be 45 minutes long. I looked at what they wrote and I am assuming that one rep would be one set. So, if you can't hold for 3 min., do up to 15 of the planks holding each one for 30 seconds each time.

if you follow those directions of holding a plank for 3 minutes and they want you to do 2 sets of 15...3minutes x 15 is 45 minutes just for one set?!? doesnt make sense.

I'm not sure I understand what you are asking.

A sparkpeople generated workout says to hold a plank for 30seconds-3 minutes and to do 2 sets of 15??? Same for the Superman.
