We’re spotting a trend here that might take over planking. Yet another man was photographed hanging upside-down on handrails while performing “gymnastic exercises” in the Wuhan Metro on the morning of June 27.
A man named Xu, who took the picture of the gymnast, told reporters that when the train departed from Huquan stop to Yangjiawan stop, this guy stood up suddenly and gripped the handrails to practice some standard somersaults mid-air.
Metro staff have once again explained to passengers to please not turn the trains into their personal workout centers as the jolting movements of the trains stopping and moving again can make people lose balance and seriously injure themselves.
That goes for people slinging hammocks across the trains as well.
