FIELDWORKING: Wow! That is quite a test. Three minutes of planks without rest would not be easy. I shall give that test a try, although I hate doing planks. Frankly, I might question this quote a bit: "If you can not complete the test fully, your core strength needs improvement." -- Brian Mackenzie. There may be people who can't complete the test fully, but yet have good core strength, in my opinion. I will have my wife time me.
I quit doing planks years ago, because I felt they were a waste of time. However, I am a big proponent of using hanging ab straps/sleeves, and most people think they are a waste of time. I am thinking the balance part will be difficult for me when I have to plank on just one arm. Now, if there were money involved or a contest with relatives, I might pass the test. LOL! Well, let's see. Can I plank for 3 minutes straight? Hmmmmmm....I would bet against it.
SPARK_COACH_JEN: I will also give that test a try. Again, I shall need my wife's assistance. I am wondering if 6" is the same difficulty level for all people regardless of height, age, weight, and gender. I haven't done crunches for several years either.
I hope I don't get two F's on my report card.
