Russian Twist with Dumbbell

Move Targets: Obliques 


Step 1: Begin in a seated position on the floor with knees bent. Hold a set of dumbbells right above your chest as you lean your upper body back to a 45-degree angle. Lift your legs and engage your core for balance.

Step 2: Keeping core tight and shoulders back, rotate to the right as far as you can. See if you can tap the dumbbells on the floor. Pause, then reverse your movement, twisting through the center and to the left as far as you can, tapping dumbbells on the floor.
