Check out the 16-year-old who can plank for 80 minutes

Yes, you read right. While most of us howl in pain after about thirty seconds, Gabi Ury, 16, from Colorado has worked her abs off to reach plank perfection.

Impressive, right? We’re totally in awe of Gabi but, like you, we were wondering why on earth she’s planking instead of doing what most sixteen year olds do on their birthday like drinking Lambrini or seeing how many boxes of Pringles we could eat in one hour and twenty minutes.

Well, Gabi’s put our 16-year-old selves to shame!

Not only does she has VATER syndrome, which causes abnormalities to the body’s systems, but by holding her 80-minute plank she’s reached the Guinness World Record Book and raised over £11,000 for a children’s hospital that helps kids like her.

Well done Gabi, you used your spare time more wisely than we did. We’re impressed!

Plus, she has a YouTube channel dedicated to planking. This might help you get that bikini body then…
