Hombre de 62 años bate el récord Guinness haciendo plancha

Si sólo un minuto te parece demasiado haciendo plancha abdominal, imaginate más de una hora. George Hood, un ex marino de Estados Unidos, se mantuvo 8 horas, 5 minutos y 15 segundos en posición de plancha y logró batir el récord Guinness.

REFLECTION Re LP #6: On Saturday, Jan 18, 2020, I executed Long Plank (LP) #6 at 515 Fitness Incorporated, @515fitnessinc a Mental Health Counseling Facility in Plainfield, IL. I finished with a time of 8:05:15 which was the 6th time I've surpassed the current GWR of 8:01:00 since it was set in June 2016. This was the last "long plank" of 6 in a training cycle that has now prepared me for my last official attempt to reclaim the GWR for "the "longest male plank", on February 15, 2020 at the 515 facility. In addition to once again surpassing the current GWR, the effort showed an AHR/MHR of 101 and 120bpm respectively with 2,896 calories, of which 31% were "Fat Cals", expended. For the first time LP#6 revealed a slightly sustained higher heart rate for approximately 2 hours, 57 minutes over the course of the effort, which reflects a slightly more "aerobic" effort. LP#6 was clearly some of the best work put forth by the crew at 515Fitness and their leader, Niki Perry to sustain me for the duration of the effort under conditions that previoulsly were arduous and difficult for me. But the switch was finally flipped w/me and the resulting transformation got all of us to the coveted mark of 8:05:15! The much talked about GWR event on Feb 15h is a joint collaborative effort to raise funds and awareness for the mental health community on behalf of the Braidwood Area Healthy Community Coalition, (BAHCC), https://www.braidwoodcoalition.org/events/gwr-event . This event will not only Break the Plank" but also "Break the Stigma" associated with mental health issues that are so prevalent in many of our neighborhoods and communities. With this training cycle behind me, I begin a very generous taper period to heal physically and emotionally from nearly 10 weeks with 6 long planks of 5:15:00, 6:20:00, 7:31:00, 7:15:00, 5:20:20 and 8:05:15 Thank you to all, near and far, who continue to support my crew and I as we prepare for the Feb 15th event. Training continues. #longestmaleplank #TeamHood #MindsetMatters #plank #georgehood #mentalhealrh

No es la primera vez que lo intenta, en 2016 fue derrotado por Mao Weidong por 8 horas, 1 minuto y 1 segundo. George no dejó que eso lo detuviera, sino todo lo contrario. Empezó a entrenar 7 horas diarias por 18 meses.

Antes del gran día se preparaba haciendo plancha por 4 o 5 horas, realizaba 700 lagartijas, 200 abdominales y 500 sentadillas, comentaba a CNN.

Estuvieron con él sus entrenadores, quienes lo ayudaban a hidratarse y lo acompañaban en esta difícil e impresionante proeza, contó también que para mantenerse en esa posición le ayudaba mucho escuchar rock de los 80 y pensar en sus hijos.

Todo este esfuerzo fue con el fin de recaudar fondos y crear conciencia acerca de la salud mental, inclusive realizó el desafío en un gimnasio que se encarga de ayudar a personas con enfermedades mentales con profesionales.
