What do y’all know about planking? Whether you think it’s the hottest new trend or the dumbest thing in the world, planking is something that no one can seem to avoid these days. Trending on Twitter, receiving media coverage from institutions like The Washington Post and CBS News, and enticing celebrities like Chris Brown, Blake Griffin and Justin Beiber to join in, planking is quite literally all around us.

While there are several websites claiming to be the “Official” planking site and many internet fans and haters debating over its origin or reasons to do it, the rules of planking seem to be fairly consistent.  More or less, you must:

  1. 1. Lay face down.
  2. 2. Keep your legs straight and your toes pointed.
  3. 3. Keep your arms by your sides.
  4. 4. Remain as stiff as a “plank” (get it?).
