Move Over Planking, Here Comes Batmanning!

Move over planking, owling, and leisure diving ... here comes the newest InterWeb trend: Batmanning!

A group of Purdue University students call themselves the "Batman Boilers" and insist they have shot the first successful batmanning video -- successful both in Batmanning skill and getting it to trend online.

But don't try this at home, or you'll end up doing something even more trendy, Emergency Rooming:

To "Batman," one hangs upside down, holding on by only one's feet from a door, bar, gate, ledge, anything. Easy? Not quite. [..]

In one video, a few giggling teenage girls pick up their friend, an aspiring batmanner, and let her hang on the closet door. They watch, cringing, and then… BOOM! The batmanner falls on her head.

I saw the video and it's really impressive. This takes a lot of lower-body strength. It doesn't hurt that these guys are all slim. I doubt you'd see many guys with a thicker build doing this.
