    Ultra athlete, former Marine, and fitness instructor George Hood set his sixth Guinness world record by holding the plank (the prone hold) for five hours 15 minutes and 15 seconds.

    Fifty-four-year-old George Hood's goal was to raise funds for the rehabilitation of injured Marines. To alleviate the excruciating pain, Hood's crew put ice on his joints.
