EOW: Torso Rotations

A Better Reverse Crunch!

Torso Rotations with a Stability Ball. This reverse crunch works all your abdominal muscles with 1 move; including those hard to tone lower abs. Keep in mind the more range of motion that you can achieve as you lean back the harder the exercise. Be sure to keep your elbows straight and abs contracted with every rep. Aim for 8 to 10 torso rotations on each side.

Do it Right

  • Sit on mat with legs straight, hold stability ball with straight arms at chest height
  • Contract abdominals, flatten low back, keep neck and chin in a neutral position, in 1 fluid motion learn back as far as you can, rotation torso to the left
  • Sit up to neutral and rotate torso to right as you learn back in a circular motion to complete 1 rep
  • Switch sides and complete the same number of reps.
