A 62-year-old ex-marine lasted around eight hours.
George Hood broke the world record after spending eight hours in the plank position. The ex-Marine of the US Navy guarantees to be in the best shape of his life, at 62 years.
Guinness confirmed the record for eight hours, 15 minutes and 15 seconds. Hood revealed to CNN that he trained on average seven hours a day for the past 18 months: “It’s four, five hours a day in a plank position.
I do 700 push-ups a day, 2000 sit-ups and 500 squats. For the upper body and arms, I do approximately 300 push-ups a day”.
The women’s record belongs to Canada’s Dana Glowacka, who held out for four hours, 19 minutes and 55 seconds.
