- Canadian mom cemented her place in the Guinness World Records for the “Longest Female Abdominal Plank.”
- Dana Glowacka planked for 4 hours and 20 minutes.
- Her first plank only lasted for 4 minutes, she admitted.
- The yoga instructor now needs to out-plank China’s Mao Weidong if she wants the claim the overall record.
The plank is a foundational core strengthening exercise that has endless benefits, the main one being improving midline stability. Planks may look deceivingly easy but anyone who has tried it will know it is a true test of total body and core strength, so you’re probably feeling proud of yourself if you managed to do it for a minute or two.
But for one Canadian mom, a few minutes of planking is way too easy. Dana Glowacka, a fitness enthusiast and Montreal yoga instructor, cemented her place in the Guinness World Records for the “Longest Female Abdominal Plank” by holding the position for 4 hours and 20 minutes.
Glowacka broke the previous 3-hour, 31-minute record set by Maria Kalimera back in 2015.
Glowacka said she started training for the record in 2016 and her first attempt at a plank ended after only 4 minutes — which is still pretty impressive for a newbie.
She pointed out how she is grateful for her “family and friends and so many supporters, near and far, (who) helped me to hold strong till the finish line”. She also thanked her brother who arrived at the event and surprised her.
She wrote on Instagram:
“My brother surprised me with a literally 24 hours trip to just support me and push the button of starting and ending line of the new world record set for the Longest Abdominal Plank of 4hrs, 20min. Here he is…my brother, standing strong by my side like an Angel.”
She has competed in a plank competition before and finished second at the International World Cup Plank Challenge in Beijing in 2016 when she pulled off a plank of 2 hours and 5 minutes, so it’s no secret that her plank game has seriously taken off in the last three years.
Should Glowacka set her sights on the overall record, she’d have to out-plank China’s Mao Weidong who holds the number one worldwide spot after planking for 8 hours and 1 minute in May 2016.
