How to Do a Plank for a Post-Baby Workout

Learn how to do the plank for a post-baby workout from personal trainer Erin Sharoni in this Howcast workout video.


Hey, my name is Erin and I'm a former US Junior Olympic certified swim coach and personal trainer and fitness is my passion so I cannot wait to share it with you guys.

We're going to do a plank. If you're not familiar with the plank already from a gym class or some horrible fitness instructor who made you hold it forever, I'm going to show you. You're going to start on your stomach, bring your elbows underneath you like so, you can clasp your hands together or you can keep them flat, whatever is more comfortable for you. You're just going to tuck your toes under, bring your body up like that, it's called a plank because your body should be in a plank, so no head up, no head down, I don't want to see that, and I don't want to see that. Nice and strong, someone should be able to serve dinner off of your back without it falling off. You're going to hold that for as long as you can, bring the knees down and the body to rest on the floor.
