He only beat my record by 5 hours and 15 minutes.

A former Marine has essentially shattered the world record for holding an abdominal plank. For quite some time, I though planking was a made-up thing people did on inanimate objects for internet amusement.

Nope. After some haphazard research, I've found that people actually take it seriously, and there are actually different kinds of planking. Though today, we'll just be talking about the, um, regular one.

So why hold a plank for 5 hours and 15 minutes? To benefit the Semper Fi Fund to help injured Marines. My favorite part of this whole video has to be how dedicated this guy is. All of the interview took place while he was planking.
