1. Sit down on a mat with your knees bent, extend your arms out to the sides and lift your feet off the floor.
2. Twist your torso to the right, and then reverse the motion, twisting it to the left.
3. Repeat this movement until the set is complete.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Twist your torso only from the ribs up, tighten your core and make sure your back is straight at all times. Keep your feet off the floor and, if you can, bring your legs up until they’re parallel with the floor. Breathe out as you twist your torso.
