So far, I'm managing just over a minute, though I can't say I'm pushing the limit on that timing; I saw it a little while back on tv and the guy suggested that 1-4 minutes was a good time...4 minutes may be a way off yet for me

I'd never bothered timing it before, I figure as long as you can do it and hold it steady for a while, it's good enough, besides I don't know where they come up with all the suggested timings either...no studies on that, I bet

I love the Prone Cobra! I do that twice a week for sets of 5-8. I only hold it a for seconds each rep though. Never thought to hold it for a long period. I'll try that this week.

Before I started doing that, the swimmer (alternating raising an arm and opposite leg) and Cat Camel and reverse hypers, back raises, etc. I had all kinds of low back tweaks and whatnot. Since, I haven't hardly any trouble with my back. It's get sore of course, but not out whack like it used to sometimes just stepping off a curb.

Tried it just now for the first time. Seems pretty easy, but I didn't test to see how long I can hold it.

Yep, for some with good back strength, it's easy enough; the time held is when the shakes start to set in and it suddenly becomes a whole new ball game.

Personally, I don't see the need to do this kind of "exercise", more a test IMO, very often because once a base of back strength has been built, it becomes obvious that the time a person can hold it for will either become static or increase and only decrease if back strength decreases, in general.
