Trunk Rotation/Working Core & Shoulders
Tips from Dan Locsin, owner of Train for Life in Morgan Hill
Holding med ball over head, pull belly button in (transverse abdominus contraction), keeping lower back neutral.
Pivot using your toes, rotating the trunk 90 degrees then pivoting back to the other side.
Do these slowly with in emphasis on lower back stability and hip control. Add more weight for more shoulder resistance. Remember to squeeze your belly in for a stronger abdominal contraction.
