Lunge with a twist

Step 1: Stand with feet about shoulder-width apart.

Hold a medicine ball (optional) in front of you with elbows bent about 90 degrees. You should begin this exercise with no weight and build up your strength over time.

Step 2: Step forward with your left foot into a lunge position. Be sure to keep your knee over your left foot; don’t twist at the knee.

Step 3: From your torso, twist your upper body to the left.

Step 4: Reach across your left side with your arms outstretched. (Think of pointing to the left from your belly button).

Step 5: Slowly move your arms to center and step forward with the opposite foot and twist to the other side.
Maintain a slow and controlled movement throughout the exercise.

Continue the movement for about ten steps.

Complete 2 sets.
