There’s new Guinness World Records for holding a plank and it’s from Dana Glowacka, a yoga instructor and a mother who held on for a total of 4 hours and 20 minutes.

The previous world record was held by Maria Kalimera, who reportedly clocked 3hrs and 31 minutes. No one has been able to break that record since it was set in 2015, until now, according to media reports.

Glowacka, of Canada, has had years of training, especially through her yoga practice, but in preparation for setting the world record.

She explained that the first time she tried to plank only lasted five minutes.

She got her chance to set the record on May 21st, at the International Plank Marathon in Naperville in Illinois.

When arriving at the competition, she knew she had what it takes to beat the record. While in training, she was able to achieve a plank of 4hr and 1min, which surpassed the world record by roughly a half hour. This also means that her time at the competition was her own personal best, by 19 minutes, said the reports

Glowacka said she was involved with “long training sets each day, with a vision to be the best I can and make my son proud”. (Photo: Instagram)
