Standing Twists Stretching Exercise for obliques and torso

Standing Twists is an excellent exercise to stretch the torso against the resistance of the lower body.

Execution Steps

  1. Stand with your feet a little more than shoulder width apart and keep your knees slightly bent.
  2. Raise your arms out to either side and hold them at chest level parallel to the floor.
  3. Now twist your upper body from the torso and stretch the torso to the right and then to the left going as far as possible on either side.

Points to Remember

  • Keep your Hips stationary to isolate the torso.
  • Face straight throughout the exercise.
