    Your back also needs to be more down and your chest over your hands. Good form must be maintained for it to actually count.

    Only 13.34 seconds thats not a lot. I can easily beat it. Yeah I beat it I got 17 seconds. I can do fingertipp handstand pushups to though. So new record. And btw is this like a world record or what.

    Congratulations Darryl

    I looked for your video but I couldn't find it :( - but yeah, it's sort of assumed to be done on one's fingertips hence 8-finger plank. As far a a normal extended plank goes, I have one record where I did one for 10 minutes on the palm of my hands. But I'd love to see your video though :)

  • United States Josh Drake

    I don't know if I did it right. I didn't do it on my fingertips like you did but you did not say that it was required in the criteria.

  • Canada Darryl Learie

    Thanks, Peter :) Today, I also set a new bench mark record for longest 6-finger plank (no thumbs, on concrete)- 16.8 seconds (but it's still in pending. Having trouble still with longest crane (yoga) pose - not sure why ?

  • Australia Peter Craig

    Wow you pushed past 1 minute, And I thought the original 13 seconds was impressive :)

  • Canada Darryl Learie

    I broke the 1 minute barrier :D

  • Canada Darryl Learie

    Well Thomas, I just pulled off 45.06 seconds in pending - I thought I could do longer but...maybe you could break it (I never under-estimate the competition ie. a 4 year-old just smashed my 5 min head stand rec, lol) But all I can tell ya is that after the first 15 seconds - I already want to quit, LOL

  • United States tmcginniss

    Shucks now this one's gonna be really tough! I don't think I can pull it off!

  • Canada Darryl Learie

    It has to be fingertips - knuckles would be too easy, it's meant to be hard. :)

  • United States tmcginniss

    Is it required that you be on your fingertips? Could you be on your knuckles?

  • Canada Darryl Learie

    Wow, I can't believe I got featured for a 2nd time - I feel honored (almost not worthy), I'm going to try this today - but don't know if I can do it cause yesterday I did another fingertip record (twice). :P

  • United States Corey Henderson

    note the actual attempts starts at 4:24 or so.

  • Canada Dan Rollman

    My favorite part is at 3:44

  • Canada Dan Rollman

    Darryl, we added concrete to the criteria. Also, your banter with Deb was hilarious. Glad it worked it out for her to time you.

  • Canada Darryl Learie

    I had originally intended this new category to be done on concrete or cement - as I know a person can go much longer on carpet, or wood, etc - is URDB keeping this category open to any surface, please let me know, cause I like to re-push this one. :)
