Christ, this hurts just typing about it.
You can now add planking to the list of things China is the best at after a police officer in Beijing became the new world record holder after maintaining his plank for just shy of four and a half hours. Ouch.
Mao Weidong, a member of Beijing Police's version of a SWAT team, held the position for a whopping four hours and 26 minutes, beating the previous record by a whole hour and 19 minutes. If you've ever even attempted to plank, you'll know that's some serious strength and pain tolerance.

Now excuse us while we go back to our lunch of Eddie Rockets. It's Monday, give us a break.
