How to Do Seated Swiss Ball Twist With Dowel

The seated swiss ball twist with a dowel 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 seated swiss ball twist with a dowel.

Beginning

Beginning Seated Swiss Ball Twist

Sit back-to-back with your partner, holding a ball in one hand and your legs bent. As one of you transfers the ball to the other, you'll both spin to one side. Rotate the ball in the opposite way and pass it to the other player.

Movement

Seated Swiss Ball Twist Movement

1. Start off by sitting on a stability ball with a dowel rested on your neck. Your arms will hold onto the ends of it to also support it.

2. Twist with your hips as far as you can in one direction.

3. Return to the starting position and then rotate the opposite direction.

Benefits

Seated Swiss Ball Twist Benefits

The Russian twist with a medicine ball is a great technique to develop your obliques, or the muscles that surround your waist. For strength, the side-to-side motion uses both the external and internal obliques. Set the ball down and twist with empty hands if the ball adds too much intensity.
