George Hood Set the World’s Longest Plank Record in 1 Hour and 20 Minutes

Ok, so this is slightly old news, but it came before I started this blog and I feel that it is VERY blog-worthy. On Dec. 3, 2011 (2 days before his 54th birthday), George Hood set an abdominal plank record of 1 hour, 20 minutes, and 5.01 seconds. Yes, you read that right.

This guy is absolutely insane, absolutely inspiring, and absolutely my kind of guy! All of you who incorporate planks into your workouts know how hard 1 little minute of planking can be… No words can express this kind of endurance and strength of mind:


Watch this before you work out for some guaranteed motivation. We all can do ANYTHING we set our minds to!

George Hood is not new to setting records (i.e. jumping rope for over 13 hours straight) or doing other amazing things (i.e. he’s a former marine). Check out this article that illustrates what kind of athlete this guy is. I’m still in awe!
