Hi, my name is Erin and I’m a former US Junior
Olympics certified swim coach and personal trainer and fitness is
my passion. So I cannot wait to
share it with you guys. All right, onto the floor where most of the
magic happens, one of my other favorite exercises is the Russian Twist. A modification, if you’re new to this,
not so strong, just keep your heels on the floor, lean back slightly. If
you are a more advanced exerciser you can bring your legs up and cross them
but I’m going to show the modified version for now. Take your medicine
ball, lean back, you should already feel the contraction in the abs, and
then you’re just going to tap the ball from side to side. If you’re
feeling adventurous, bring the legs up for a greater burn. You could do
3 sets of 30 to 40 of those, they’re pretty quick but you should feel a nice

  1. This is an awful video seeing as though she's not even doing them correctly. All she is doing is moving her arms back and forth.

  2. When I tried to do this after watching this video, there was no weights around.. and the most suitably sized object I had was a bottle of lotion. Now I call this 'Lotion Twist' and always use lotion bottle.

  3. Not accurate really, but maybe there's a difference in doing these twists for men and for women. Because your body should be twisting a bit and not just waving your arms around

  4. We had to do this exercise in pt one morning it really worked my core when we were done I went to release my bowels lets just say I was literally was 4lbs lighter afterwards. "More pt! More pt! Make it hurt first sergeant, make it hurt!"

  5. Russian twist is not a good exercise to do. You're sitting in an uncomfortable position without any support on your back and as you twist you're putting stress on the lumbar spine. People should never do Russian twist. This is why people experiene lower back pain after doing Russian Twist.

  6. You move the upper body with your core in order to do it right…try it; not as easy as it looks. She's not moving her shoulders back and forth; it's the core she uses. Imagine a bar across your chest that can't be broken from deltoid to deltoid now go…crossing the legs is up to the individual as well as speed. She's assuming anyone advanced enough to watch this type of exercise knows about core training

  7. May sure your back is straight, and legs are at a straight angle because it will mess with your back and spine if you don’t do them correctly

  8. 1.First incline to a point so that you can feel your abs working
    2. Try maintaining that posture
    3.Now slowly twist your abs to the side of your weight (ex left side)and make sure that the opposite shoulder tries and aligns to the midline or atleast hips
    4 hold position momentarily and then repeat it on the other side
    During the whole time maintain position
