5x Guinness World Record holder, George Hood will make an official GWR attempt to reset the current "plank" record on April 20, 2013 starting at 0930 EST at the Newport on the Levee venue in Newport, KY. George's attempt is in conjunction with the annual Heartchase fundraiser on behalf of the American Heart Association. For more details, you can visit George's Heartchase page at http://honor.americanheart.org/site/TR/HeartChase/HC-GRA?px=3652067&pg=personal&fr_id=1882 .
George is the current record holder for the plank but a recent attempt against his mark and at the request of the American Heart Association, George was happy to reattempt the plank to raise money and awareness for the American Heart Association.
George has exceeded his previous mark 8 times since setting it in Dec, 2011 and he has had 4 PR's since then with his most recent plank going for 2 hours, 10 mins during another fundraiser at the Five Seasons Sports club just a few weeks ago. George's effort today could very well make history for the last time as so many in the fitness industry continue to be amazed by this extreme feat of endurance, mental stamina and outright conditioning. George will be supported by a dedicated crew who will pilot him thru his endeavor. Therein lies the real story of this event and the cause for which George continues do such amazing things.
