I do not get the appeal of planking. There, I said it! It's dangerous and you can get seriously hurt doing it. Especially if you decide to do it next to a raging mosh pit. Don't believe me, just take a look at this video. Heed my words, if you do decide to plank within 2-5 feet of a pit, some asshole will do a flying-Jackie Chan-front-flip-body-slam maneuver on you, possibly shattering your ribs. Watch what happens below.
