Plank Record Broken by a Woman Who Held It for 4 Hours
Although the meaning of fitness has significantly changed over the years, there are still people with superhuman feats of strength. Here is a woman who is an example of an awe-inspiring strength and endurance.
Dana Glowacka is a fitness blogger who managed to hold a plank for 4 hours, while an average human can endure holding planks for only 5 minutes more or less.
She managed to hold a plank for 4 hours and 20 minutes, thus breaking the Women’s International Planking Record. Even her brother came from a 24-hour trip just to stand by and watch her breaking the world’s record.
In 2016, at the International World Cup Plank Challenge held in Beijing, Dana placed second as she managed to hold a plank for 2 hours and 5 minutes.
Maria Kalimera from Cyprus was the previous record holder who endured planking for 3 hours and 31 minutes.
Holding planks is a great type of exercise which has numerous health benefits, for example:
• Improves your core strength
• Maintains your mobility and stability
• Activates more body muscles
• Enhances the body posture
• Increases body flexibility
• Side planks strengthen the spine and reduce spinal issues
