Definitely a favourite of ours!! THE PLANK - Strengthen your stomach, back, glutes, shoulders and arms with this do-anywhere move. It's tough but so, so worth it! ​It's important to get your technique right as it prevents injury and you can get the most out of the exercise. ​ ​• Keep your back and neck aligned and your eyes down to reduce strain ​• Squeeze your glutes and keep your hips strong and taut - a sagging pelvis puts your back at risk of injury ​• Suck your belly button towards your spine, but keep breathing! ​• Align your elbows directly under your shoulders ​• It’s up to you whether you clasp or flatten your hands ​• Your arms can be either straight (high plank) or bent at 90º (low plank) ​• Stay on your tiptoes with your feet together ​ SIGNS YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG ❌ ​You're arching your back ​❌ Your hips are drooping ​ *Always consult with your trainer/instructor or health professional if you have any complications throughout pregnancy or postpartum. ​ ​ ​#mamafitness #mamas #mumandbabygroups #parentingtruth #babyfitness #womensworkouts #fitnesswithbaby #babybonding #postnatalfitness #fitnessclass #mamalove #sweatymamilates #prenatalfitness #mamilates #happybaby #fitmum #baby #sweatymamaclass #workoutwithbaby #sweatymamamoments #sweatymama #mumlife #reallife #parenting #sweatymamalove
