Workout Steps


Step 1

Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet placed flat on the floor about hip-width apart. You can place weights on your feet to help keep them rooted on the ground. Now sit about halfway up and place your hands di­rectly out in front of you. Your arms are straight with palms together and your chin is up and off your chest. You can hold a dumbbell or a medicine ball to make the exercise even more difficult.

Step 2

Take a deep breath and then exhale while slowly twisting your torso as far to the right as you can manage without chang­ing the angle of your torso from the floor.

Step 3

Now inhale slowly and rotate your torso back to the starting posi­tion. Repeat by rotating torso to the left side.
