What’s the longest anyone has ever held a plank?

George Hood currently holds the record for longest plank at a whopping eight hours, 15 minutes and 15 seconds. So yeah, just a little bit longer than your record. For women, the record is four hours, 19 minutes and 55 seconds, and it was set by Dana Glowacka in 2019. I anticipate your next question is, “How?” because an eight-hour plank sounds pretty impossible. Leading up to his record plank, Hood trained for about seven hours a day, doing 700 push-ups, 2,000 crunches, 500 toe squats, 500 band curls, 30 minutes of cardio, and four to five hours of planking. So, if you’re looking to plank for hours instead of minutes, good luck with that.
