    I really like how concise your instructions are, makes it easy to follow the exercise. There is one thing that concerns me though: have you heard of diastasis? It’s a condition that affects a lot of women, especially those who are moms! It’s when the abdominal muscels seperate and can’t support the organs properly and you get that mommy pouch that we all try so hard to get rid of. Crunches and plank exercises (like this one) put pressure on that connective tissue and further seperate the abs causing more problems! Yikes! Check out the tuppler technique (http://www.diastasisrehab.com/) for some info or just google diastasis. If you want some better exercises, or to check to see if you have it, go to fit2b.us and find her tummy safe path and there’s a video that shows you how to check yourself.
