Russian Twist

The Russian Twist is a rotational exercise and can be completed using a variety of implements such as a medicine ball, weight plate, kettlebell, sandbag, etc… To complete the exercise correctly see the video and description below.

  1. Sit on the ground, slightly back on the ‘sit bones’ with your feet off the ground.
  2. Grab your weight and hold it in your hands in front of your chest.
  3. Keeping your abs contracted and your feet off the ground twist the weight side to side, touching the ground on each side.
  4. Be sure to rotate your entire upper body as you twist.  This is easier to accomplish if you make an effort to watch the weight touch the ground on each side.
  5. Complete for the prescribed number of reps.
