The oblique twist is a fantastic exercise for your core, especially your side abdominals (also called obliques). Be sure to choose a resistance band that feels comfortable. As you progress, you can choose bands with greater resistance.

Step By Step Instructions

Step 1

With one end of your band securely held by a partner or object, hold the other end of the band in your hands. Start with your arms extended and centered in front of you at about chest height. Keep your shoulders down and away from your ears.

 Step 2

Twist your upper torso to one side, twisting the foot on the opposite side to complete the motion. Focus on maintaining a slight rotation of the hips, steady breathing, and your shoulders down and away from your ears.

Step 3

Return to your center position.
