No, that's a different type of planking that stopped being cool after about a week. You are referring to the abdominal workout where you lie straight, tilted slightly toward your feet, with only your elbows and toes touching the ground. Be careful not to let hips droop down and also don't stick rear up in the air. Shoulders, ass, and knees should form a line to your feet. Do 3 sets and hold each set until line breaks. Rest 1 minute and go again. EXCELLENT workout.

Planking is an exercise that involves lying when facing down with both hands touching the sides of the body. Players tend to find unique places like on top of cars to play this game. Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planking_(fad) for more details.
