Reverse Twists w/ medicine ball
Work your abs without crunches. The Reverse Twists are a great way to tone & sculpt your abs from a seated position. These are challenging, be sure to keep your abdominals contracted during the entire move. No medicine ball, no problem simply use a light weight dumbbell. If you are a beginner, make it easier by performing the exercise without the weight.
Do it Right
- Sit on mat, bend knees with heels on floor hips distance apart, hold medicine ball on upper chest with elbows pointed out to the sides
- Contract abdominal muscles, flatten low back, keep neck and chin in a neutral position & simultaneously lean back & twist upper body to the left until left elbow touches the floor behind you, exhale & return to starting position
- Immediately, lean back & twist upper body to the right until right elbow touches the floor
