SUPERMAN TWIST INSTRUCTIONS
1. Lie on your stomach with your legs fully extended, arms bent and hands behind the ears.
2. Lift and twist your upper torso to the side and pause for 2 seconds.
3. Return to the starting position and repeat, twisting your torso to the opposite side.
PROPER FORM AND BREATHING PATTERN
Keep your core tight, your spine neutral and engage your back muscles. Exhale as you twist your torso to the side and move only from the ribs up. Pause for 2 seconds and then breathe in as you slowly return to the starting position.
The superman twist targets the back muscles and is an excellent exercise to improve your posture and give you a taller and slimmer-looking appearance. This exercise also stretches the upper body and improves your flexibility.
