Your pediatrician has probably spoken to you how important tummy time is for your baby to develop neck, back and shoulder muscles and you are probably experiencing how much pregnancy has taken a toll on your body, especially in your abdominal area.It is important to build your core muscles back up. I always try to incorporate my kids in my workouts, it is a great way to bond, spend some quality time and, encourage them to be active. So while baby does tummy time I do planking time. This routine can be as long as you want it to be. I started with a quick 5 minute planking routine and I challenge myself by adding an additional 10 second each week per plank position. Here is my starter routine and you can customize the times that best fit you. Don’t be afraid to challenge yourself!
1 MINUTE FULL PLANK
30 SECOND ELBOW PLANK
30 SECOND RAISED LEG PLANK (each side)
30 SECOND SIDE PLANK (each side)
30 SECOND FULL PLANK
1 MINUTE ELBOW PLANK
