To do a wall-assisted plank, place your forearms in the shape of an upside-down V onto the wall. Your hands should be touching each other and elbows should feel like they are in a natural position.
Lean into the wall, directing as much of the tension into your abs as possible. Take steps back to gradually make this exercise harder until you are at the position shown below. Hold the position for the amount of time desired.
**As with initiating any new exercise, if you are not certain you are healthy enough to perform the exercise please check with your health care provider**
