Start Position: Placing feet under pads to brace yourself, lie on an incline bench. Cross your arms over your chest.
MidPoint: Try to keep your neck in line with your back. Contract your abs bringing yourself up as far as you can. Make sure to exhale and breathe.
Finish Position: Slowly lower yourself back down, but keep constant stress on your abs. So, don’t go all the way back down where your shoulders touch the bench before starting your next ascent. Work up to 15-20 reps per set. Feel the burn! To make it more difficult, put your hands behind your head or make the incline steeper.
