How do I perform a bench incline plank?

Wendy Batts
When performing a bench incline plank, begin by placing your toes shoulder-width apart on the ground and your forearms on a bench. Make sure that your elbows are directly under your shoulders and your head is in a neutral position. Next, draw in your abs toward your spine and contract your glutes and quads (making sure that your feet and heels do not touch each other) until you form a straight line from head to toe. Hold this position for a few seconds and repeat. Perform this exercise for the desired number of sets and repetitions.
