Plank With Feet on Bench Overview

Just like a common plank, a plank with feet on the bench targets abs and lower back for strength and stability. The feet on the bench add to the challenge given to your muscles. It's a bodyweight exercise but you can add weight for increased resistance.

How to Do It

  1. This is another version of the famous plank exercise. The difference being that your feet are resting on a bench. This position adds to the challenge and makes the exercise more demanding. Set up for the exercise by placing a mat on the floor and setting a bench at right angles on one end.
  2. Put your feet on the bench, and rest your torso on your elbows.
  3. Straighten out your whole body to form a perfectly straight plank.
  4. Hold this position as long as possible. Rest for 1 min, then repeat.

Tips on Planks

  1. Keep your body dead straight at all times. Do not let your midsection bend and sag
  2. Add intensity by lifting one of your feet off the bench slightly.
