Planking is when someone lies flat on their stomach with their arms straight back against their body. The straighter your body, arms, and legs, the better the plank, then they try to do it on narrow surfaces. This craze started in Australia.

Planking is the act of lying horizontal, face-down in various locations and acting like a "Plank". Photographs are then taken and posted on the internet so everyone can see how awesome your planking skills are. Both location and difficulty of the plank are important.
