Move Targets: Lower abdominal muscles 


Step 1: Lay your baby on the ground face up while kneeling in-front of them. Lean over top of them resting your weight on your knees and forearms.

Step 2: Push off the floor, raising up onto toes and resting on your forearms. Keep your back flat, contracting your abdominal muscles while you hold your body in a straight line from head to toe. Don’t let your butt sag or stick up in the air. Hold in this position for 60 seconds.

Modification (Beginner): Push off the floor and keep your knees on the floor.
