Great app idea, but a little hardcore... I love this app, it's simple yet very effective and motivating. Also I like the fact that they thought often rest days also... I only give it 4 stars though because I think the numbers are going up too fast at least for me... Until 60sec I was fine, but I have troubles with planking 90sec... I know I'm not in a good shape, but maybe some steps in between could've helped? Next step is 120sec... not sure how I could manage this... :/
Great Great little app that tracks your planking efforts over 30 days. I'd question whether the increments in time are based on advice from a qualified PT or physio - it seems quite hard going! Maybe different levels (beginner and advanced) would be useful for those starting at different abilities?
I really like these exercises because you can change them to fit your needs. If you are a beginner in poor shape, this exercise can be modified to your needs. Get a cooking timer or whatever and start with 5 seconds, or 10 seconds. Rest for 30 seconds or even a minute. As you are able do another one, press on without overexertion. This exercise is made to be modified to as little or as much as you want to do. If you can do only 1, do 1. At some point you will be able to do 2. Don't give up.
30 seconds increases too high! This app has potential, once the time increase intervals are reduced down to 15 seconds. For a novice, and someone whose job is already physically demanding, to be expected to hold a Plank for 4 minutes on day 27 is a bit much. Once this is corrected, this will be a 5 star app.
Not working It worked the first time then it stopped. Sometimes it shows the right screen. Even when it works it is not intuitive. Switching on takes longer than doing the plank and how can I begin before I see instructions. Also why when it worked at fitst it was showing 60 seconds and now just 20. No adjustment. Bullocks.
Nice app, bad set durations The app is simple and nice. But the plank durations and progression are not realistic. It would make more sense to ask you to do your maximum on the first day, and create a program for your level. It doesn't make sense to start with 30sec if I can already do 60, and similarly it's not realistic to expect a non fit person to do 3 minute plank after 3 weeks only.
