2. Bend and rotate your torso to the right, touching your right feet with your left hand.
3. Return to the starting position and repeat on the other side.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Keep your back and your arms straight and engage your abs. Maintain a neutral spine and use your abs and obliques to control the movement. Breathe deeply and inhale as you lift your torso and return to the starting position.
From the Shop
The bent over twist is a great exercise to improve your flexibility and stability. It’s also a good warm-up exercise because it rotates your body and moves it through the transverse plane of motion. While getting your body ready for a workout it’s important to do, not only back and forth and side to side movements, but also rotation movements.
