Next Event: IDFA 141: CALGARY (Amateur & Pro) – NOVEMBER 16

Alternating Lower Body Russian Twists

Alternating Lower Body Russian Twists (with stability ball)

Model: Shaun Campbell, IDFA Founder & Pro Natural Bodybuilder

Target: Emphasis on the Obliques

Preparation
Begin by lying on your back with your knees at 90 degrees and your feet resting on top of the ball; make sure your buttocks and hamstrings are against the ball and your knees are straight above your hips. Keep arms out at 90 degrees.

Execution
Rotate your knees (within a comfortable range of motion) to one side of your body while keeping the opposite shoulder flat on the ground. Return back to the top of the motion and repeat to the other side. (Alternate side to side)

Comments
To increase the difficulty of this exercise you can increase the rotation so that your thigh is parallel to the ground. This exercise can also be done with out the stability ball. If not using the ball, keep your legs straight and feet pointing straight up, perpendicular to the floor, and follow the same execution as above.
