Trunk Rotation/Working Core & Shoulders

Tips from Dan Locsin, owner of Train for Life in Morgan Hill

Start by holding the medicine ball over your head with feet shoulder width apart and knees slightly bent.

Rotate at the waist, pivoting the back foot but keeping your upper body inline as much a possible.

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.
