Plate Twist Guide

Main Muscle: Abdominals

  1. Lie down on the floor or an exercise mat with your legs fully extended and your upper body upright. Grab the plate by its sides with both hands out in front of your abdominals with your arms slightly bent.
  2. Slowly cross your legs near your ankles and lift them up off the ground. Your knees should also be bent slightly. Note: Move your upper body back slightly to help keep you balanced turning this exercise. This is the starting position.
  3. Move the plate to the left side and touch the floor with it. Breathe out as you perform that movement.
  4. Come back to the starting position as you breathe in and then repeat the movement but this time to the right side of the body. Tip: Use a slow controlled movement at all times. Jerking motions can injure the back.
  5. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.

So I mix this exercise with plank (all abs), bottoms up (more effective for bottom abs), and spell caster. I tell ya just in a month I...+See More

Jul 12, 2013 12:48 PM: All I did for abs were these or weighted sit-ups for 3 sets of 20 reps at the end of my workout. They kept my body safe and injury-free from heavy lifting.
