Sit on mat or floor and with legs flexed about right angled place heels on floor in front. Lean torso backward while lower back remains off floor. Bring hands together centrical in front of chest and keep arms slightly flexed.


Rotate torso from side to side. Keep hips in stable position and let head follow motion.

Variations / Comments

Russian twist is not an exercise for deltoid or pectorals, therefore keep hands in one plane above chest and donīt swing arms from side to side. Instead concentrate on twisting torso in a dynamic and controlled manner.
