Rotational Lift

The rotational lift builds strength in your core, particularly in your obliques. The exercise also strengthens and stabilizes the lower back.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Keep your feet flat on the ground throughout the exercise.
  • Avoid letting your lower back come off the ground.
  • Perform reps slowly to avoid using momentum.
