This is a cool lil’ exercise for core that is designed to hit all of the abdominal muscles at once. The resistance caused by the band will engage transverse abdominis (inner core), the sit-up rectus abdominis (six pack) and the twisting obliques.

Main Muscles: Abdominals, Obliques

Key Points:
– Keep your chest high and core tight
– Sit in a Z position with your knees bent and heels on the floor
– Extend your arms in front of your chest and lock your elbows while holding the handle with both hands
– Drive your lower back into the floor when exploding upwards
– Twist your torso so that your hands draw a quarter circle around you from 12 o’clock to 3 o’clock and then 12 o’clock to 9 o’clock when working the other side
– Train both sides evenly
