If you are not familiar with the term “planking” it is quite an unusual and fun activity you could possibly decide to engage with. It’s when a person lays horizontally with straightened body and downward pointed toes. Usually the more bizarre location you decide to do it the better.
In August last year a 16-year-old girl from Denver named Gaby Ury decided to begin training in order to best the Guinness World Record for planking. Just a few days ago she finally bested the record with her incredible achievement of 1 hour and 20 minutes. Not only did she broke the record but she also helped raise $50,000 for a children’s hospital. Her incredible accomplishment is beyond impressive because Gaby suffers from scoliosis and was born with the VATER syndrome. She had 14 serious surgeries in her lifetime where some of her leg and arm muscles had to be removed.
Despite her condition Gabi is determined to attempt breaking even more Guinness World Records.
