Trainer’s Tips

  • Keep your knees out and centered over your feet throughout the entire exercise. Avoid letting them roll in as you rotate.
  • Keep your feet flat on the ground and center your weight over your heels.
  • Avoid rounding your shoulders forward during the exercise. Pull your shoulders down and back.
