Instructions: How To

This core-centric exercise utilizes the loop band to add resistance to the twisting motion, engaging the obliques and entire abdominal region. It helps in developing rotational strength and flexibility, important for athletic performance and daily activities. The standing position also challenges the stabilizer muscles, enhancing overall core stability and posture.

  1. Wrap a resistance band around a fixed pole at shoulder height and stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart perpendicular to the pole a few feet away.
  2. Clasp your hands around the end of the resistance band with extended arms at shoulder height near the anchor point.
  3. Rotate your torso away from the anchor point keeping your hands in front of the middle of your chest.
  4. Return to the starting position and repeat with the opposite side.
