Have you missed my exercises? I hope so 🙂
This is a good and easy exercise for beginners who want to tone their abs. If you haven´t a medicine ball, use a light dumbbell or any other object. 2-3 kgs should be enough.
Sit on your mat with your knees slightly bent, feet together, and heels on the floor. Sit as tall as possible. If you have tightness in your back and legs, sit on a cushion or a rolled mat in order to lift your hips and help facilitate a straighter spine. Hold the medicine ball close to your body between your navel and your rib cage. Use your breath to help engage the muscles of your core.
Exhale and slowly rotate your torso to one side. The ball should stay in place through the entire exercise. Do not allow the ball to drop toward the floor. Pause briefly at the end of the twist, inhale and then gently exhale while rotating completely to the opposite side. Repeat the movement back and forth.
