Trending| ''Planking'', sickest trend ever?

Planking began as "playing dead" in 2003."On one’s belly", 2004, and the Lying Down Game (1997 or 2006) in South Korea, Europe and Japan.The term "planking" was coined in Australia and became a hype (fad) in 2011.

The Planking Australia group on Facebook has announced 25 May 2011 as the inaugural annual Planking Day, to encourage new and group planking. On May 13, 2011, a 20-year-old male from Gladstone in central Queensland was charged for allegedly planking on a police vehicle.

Planking, is an action of lying your Face down with arms to the sides of the body, in unusual public spaces
and photgraphing it.
Planking is just like playing dead on extraodanary places.
Just act like a plank, stiff.

Rules Of Planking :

Planking is a simple yet effective procedure.

'You got a body, you got a Plank' Ashley Wilson 11

But one can't just go around lying down willy nilly, There are a few rules that need to be adhered to.

When performing a Plank:

1/ You must always lay face down, ensuring your face remains expressionless for the duration of the Plank.

2/ Your legs must remain straight, and together with toes pointed.

3/ Your arms must be placed by your side, held straight and fingers pointed.

4/ You must make it known that you are Planking. Saying 'I am Planking' usually get this across. Sternly announcing it will ensure a good result.

5/ Your safety should always be considered. Properly thought through Planking procedures should always go to plan. Never put your self at undue risk.

6/ Every Plank that is captured must be named.
