What had attracted the stone-age people to one another? It was the superhuman feats of strength. These days, in the 21st century, though the meaning of strength, fitness and exercise has changed, it’s still in the human nature to gasp at any kind of feat of strength and endurance. While some are genuinely awe-inspiring, here is one such paradigm.

Holding the plank is no walk in the park. While an average human can hold the plank for 5 minutes at a stretch, after the time is up, their core will be on fire. But this is not the case for Dana Glowacka, a fitness blogger, who went through the plank for over 4 hours. Now she’s got some core, right?

She was able to break the Women’s International Planking Record, by holding the plank for 4 hours and 20 minutes, the previous record holder being Maria Kalimera from Cyprus who managed to hold a plank for a whopping 3 hours and 31 minutes.

At the First International Plank Training Conference, the fitness blogger from Montreal showed everybody what real strength is. The previous record held by Maria, planked for 3 hours 30 minutes, while Dana planked for 4 hours 20 minutes, and this elaborates on how tremendous her record is. So, she not only powered through the old record but also did it by an hour.

In the middle such adrenalin fuelled environment, this fitness fanatic’s brother came after a 24-hour trip to be with her and display sibling support and stood by, to watch her as she broke the record.
