Targeted Muscles: External & Internal obliques
Purpose: To help turn the upper body and protect against collapse of the upper body laterally.
Setup: Place one hand with finger tips gently behind the ears. Allow other arm to rest down by your side.
Exhale: Slightly draw your chest forward, only until the mid back starts to peel off the wall, then engage obliques (side abdomen) to rotate towards the opposite hip from the elevated arm.
Inhale: Draw yourself back up to the starting position, feeling length throughout the torso.
Reminder: If needed, Pause and do oblique twists from standing position to prepare. Experience trunk rotation being performed by only the core and not the shoulders.
