Many of us may expect a yogi or a fitness trainer to upstage us when it comes to planking, but not a baby.
However, in the case of Rowan McGowan, who is 6 months old, that’s exactly it — unless you can hold a plank for longer than 34 seconds, that is.
In a viral video posted on YouTube, baby McGowan does the ab exercise with the help of his mom, Dana, who encourages her son in the video by remarking, “Good plank buddy! Pull that core in tight.”
Dana is a Buti yogi instructor in Kentucky, the Daily Mail reported.
While little Rowan certainly doesn’t need to be worrying about flat abs, he can teach us all a thing or two about the exercise — namely, that perseverance is crucial!
Seconds after he falls from the first plank, Rowan gets right back up and tries again.
“Keep going monkey,” Dana says in the video, which has garnered more than 72,000 views since being posted Feb. 23. “You’re amazing.”
