So, here it is people a little challenge from me...1 exercise, 30 days, calendar attached not going crazy and only going to 120 by the end of it (hopefully )
a bit about plank:
The plank strengthens the abdominals, back, and shoulders. Muscles involved in the front plank include:
Primary muscles: erector spinae, rectus abdominis (abs), and transverse abdominal.
Secondary muscles (synergists/segmental stabilizers): trapezius (traps), rhomboids, rotator cuff, the anterior, medial, and posterior deltoid muscles (delts), pectorals (pecs), serratus anterior, gluteus maximus (glutes), quadriceps (quads), and gastrocnemius.
Muscles involved in the side plank include:
Primary: transversus abdominis muscle, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus muscles (abductors), the adductor muscles of the hip, and the external, and internal oblique.
Secondary: gluteus maximus (glutes), quadriceps (quads), and hamstrings

I also found a useful video about plank taken from youtube:
please watch the video, as I am not there to see if you are doing it right and I don't want anyone to hurt themselves *love*
No cheating make sure to report your second, stick to the seconds, if it will be too difficult, stick to seconds you are comfortable doing and following day try to put few extra
So, I hope this post finds everyone well and let the challenge begin! get your friends/family/work colleagues involved...the more the merrier!
p.s. I do mine around 1pm
