This is one of the more advanced core exercises for building explosive strength. If you’re capable, but are not doing overhead sit-ups on a regular basis for some reason then you are missing out on some big gains!
Improve your posture by adding prone resistance band rotations to your back and/or shoulders routine. Although broomstick rotations and standing rotations with a resistance band are very similar and effective, you may find that switching to a prone (face down) position is a great way to take those movements to the next level.
Watch the video (far bottom) for complete instructions.
