Kneeling Russian Twist

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Core


Step 1: Come to your knees, bringing them as close together as comfortable and push the hips forward. Hold one dumbbell horizontally at the chest.


Step 2: Lean backward as far as you can while keeping control. Do NOT hinge the hips! Push them forward.


Step 3: Twist over to one side without lifting the knees off the floor.


Step 4: Immediately twist over to the other side — do not stop in the center. If you get dizzy from the twisting, look straight ahead and limit your range of motion.
