Let's get cracking with this core rotational exercise.
This simple exercise can be done anywhere, such as in front of the mirror, in the lounge room, or even when you get out of bed in the morning.
But first, you must activate your core, which is essential to perform the exercise.
Once you discover your core, put your hands out in front of you, stand up tall and straight, and rotate your body in a controlled motion (repeat for about 30 repetitions).
It's as simple as that!
ROB'S TOP TIPS
- Activate your core
- Stand up tall and straight
- Use a slow and controlled motion of rotation
- Hold a can of food (or something with weight) for a challenge
