How to Do Staggered Rotational Reach

The staggered rotational reach 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 staggered rotational reach.
