How to Do

How to Do Oblique Twists

The oblique twists should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the oblique twists.

The oblique twist will help you improve your posture and balance. This is due to the fact that oblique twists focus on strengthening the oblique muscles and spine, increasing their flexibility to allow for easier movement, and reducing the pressure on the lower back when performing daily activities like lifting.
