Sitting Twists Guide

  • Bring your hands together.
  • Twist your upper body from the waist as you dip your hands from side to side.
  • Do 15 to 20 reps or any amount of reps that may be recommended to you specifically.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Ensure your core muscles are tight throughout the exercise.
  • Breathe out sharply as you twist from side to side.
  • You can also make the move more advanced by lifting your feet three or four inches off the floor. 
  • If you have incurred a lower back injury do not attempt this exercise unless it has been allowed by your doctor.
