How long can you hold a plank pose? Montrealer shatters female world record

Dana Glowacka

If you can hold a plank pose for a couple of minutes, that's considered pretty good.

But, that's not even a warm up for a Montrealer who just shattered the female record for doing that by almost an hour.

Dana Glowacka held the plank position for 4 hours and 20 minutes, breaking the world record, which was 3 hours and 30 minutes.

She set the record at the First International Plank Training Conference in Naperville, IL on May 18.

Glowacka trained in several types of yoga. 

The record for longest male plank is eight hours and one minute in May, 2016.
