Mom’s Flat Abs Move Of The Month

Attention Mom’s! This total core exercise is just for you and will sculpt, tone, tighten and strengthen one’s entire core (abdominals, lower back, hips, obliques, etc.)!  Even better, this move requires only a couple minutes, 3-4 times a week.  So, for the sake of summer abs and total core strength, give these variations of the core plank a try.

CORE PLANK:

Start by laying on the floor, on your stomach.  Keep your core tight and raise up off from the floor to your forearms and toes (you can also use your hands with straight arms (like holding a push-up)).  Keep your body flat and parallel from the ground engaging all muscles in your body. Hold for 30 seconds and then go into the side plank. For advanced fitness levels, slowly rock your body forward and then back instead of holding the traditional plank.

Side Plank:

Turn onto your side and raise your hip off the floor.  Bodyweight should be focused from the side of your feet and your forearm (also can be on hand with straight arm).  Try to stay in a straight line of the floor.  Squeeze your core and engage all your muscles in your body.  Hold for 30 seconds and change sides.

Hold each plank for 30 seconds and then repeat two times through.

Common mistakes to avoid are holding one’s glutes up too high or low, creating a slouch or dip in the spine.  Ideally, keep the back level enough to place a glass of water on.  No spills of course.
