Low Impact


Equipment Needed:

Workout Type:
Core conditioning, low impact

Body Focus:


• Start seated with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Keep your hands together in front of your ribcage.
•  Keeping the spine long (back flat, shoulders back, chest up), lean back slightly and lift the feet a few inches off the floor.
•  Slowly twist the torso to the left, hold for a count, and twist the torso to the right. That’s one rep.
•  Keep twisting to the left and right for the desired number of repetitions.

Useful Tips:
•  The movement is not large and comes from the torso rotating, not from your arms swinging.
•  Engage your core throughout to keep balance and look towards the direction you’re twisting.
•  For an easier version, you can place your feet on the ground.
You should feel your:
•  Core and obliques.
