[WATCH] New women's world planking record set at over 4 hours
Dana Glowacka from Montreal, Canada has broken the world record for the longest plank for women.
The plank is a strength exercise that involves maintaining a position similar to a push-up for the maximum possible time. It requires core strength and stamina.
Glowacka says she has built up her strength with activities such as yoga and when she first started, could only plank for a few minutes.
Watch the time-lapse video of her over 4-hour marathon session below:
