Incline Twisting Sit UpToned side
You keep constant tension when you go down, and you go down slowly!
1. Lie on a flat bench with your feet flat on the floor. 2. Place your arms crossed over your chest and hold onto your shoulders.
1. Begin the exercise by raising your upper body up until your back is nearly perpendicular to the bench. 2. Twist your torso to the right as you raise your body up, and then return to the starting position. 3. Repeat the movement, this time twisting to the left as you raise your body. 4. Continue alternating sides for the desired number of repetitions.
1. Exhale as you twist and raise your upper body up. 2. Inhale as you return to the starting position.
1. Keep your abdominal muscles engaged throughout the exercise to protect your lower back. 2. Avoid arching your back as you raise your body, and keep your back pressed firmly against the bench. 3. Go slowly and focus on using your abdominal muscles to control the movement.
