This planking trend is relatively new to me, but I’m all about doing things just because everyone else is doing it. Okay, not really. But I am all about random stuff, and planking falls neatly into the random category. (Yes, I do know it’s oxymoron-ish to make a category of random stuff. But thank you for pointing it out.)
Anyhow, apparently someone in Australia died while planking, so the Prime Minister wanted to ban the activity altogether. But why throw the proverbial baby out with the bathwater? Clearly, a lesson in planking responsibly is needed. If it saves just one life, it will have been worth it.
If somehow my video doesn’t make planking clear enough to you, or if you’re just taken with the idea of it and want to find out more, please check out the FB page on planking.
