Advanced Russian Twist

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Core (Obliques and Lower Abs) 


Step 1: Sit down with your knees bent and feet on the floor. Lift the legs up, keeping the knees bent at 90 degrees. Your shins should be parallel to the floor. Clasp your hands together with straight arms and rotate the torso to one side. Your arms and hands will be on the outside of your legs. Be sure to pull the naval in toward the spine so the lower back doesn't arch or tense.


Step 2: Take a deep breath, then exhale while slowly twisting your torso as far to the right as you can manage without changing the angle of your torso from the floor.
