Standing Torso Twist
*Always check with a doctor prior to beginning a new workout or health regimen.
This core-strengthening exercise allows your torso to move through a full range of motion, targeting your back, abdominals and obliques all at once.
- Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent, holding a medicine ball (or dumbbell) in both hands.
- Keeping shoulders down, engage abs, bend elbows slightly and rotate torso to right until arms are in line with body.
- Rotate back through center and over to left.
- Continue rotating from side to side.
