Canadian Woman Planks for 4+ Hours to Break World Record

Yeah, planking was cool and all in, like, 2011, but—actually, maybe it’s cool again.

That’s because the planking world has a new celebrity in Canadian Dana Glowacka. Glowacka, of Montreal, set a new Guiness World Record last week at the International Plank Training Conference in Illinois by holding the position for four hours and 20 minutes. It is the longest that any woman has ever planked. The previous record was set in 2015 at three hours and 31 minutes.

Judging by her Instagram activity, Dana is absolutely a professional. She probably planks more in a day than I do over the course of an entire year.

Here she is training with 12x world record holder George Hood:

If my eyes don’t deceive me, she actually held a plank there for 13 minutes longer than her official record. The lesson? Always invite a Guinness World Records representative before setting out to do anything.

“Just do it, do it right, train for it, and believe in yourself … for a stronger, healthier and happier life,” she wrote in a posts before the competition. Easy!
