Hey. My name is Erin, and I'm a former U.S. junior Olympic certified swim coach and personal trainer, and fitness is my passion, so I cannot wait to share it with you guys. Go into the plank, which you all know and love to hate, I'm sure. So, you know, the plank's called the plank for a reason. Make sure that the back is nice and straight. Don't want that butt up and don't want the back sinking down. And you're going to hold for as long as you possibly can. Come down, stretch it out a little.
