Seated Cable Trunk Twisting
Grab a stool, bench, or chair. Set the cable at what chest-height would be when you are seated. Sit so the cable machine is directly to your right. Now scoot far enough forward that the cable would be traveling slightly backwards at an angle. Grab the cable with your outside hand (in this case your Left hand) and take a seat and put the cable and your hand close to your chest. Sit the Right hand on top of your Left hand and the cable handle. Make sure you stay seated tall. Begin to twist your torso away from the machine. If you think about the middle of your chest pointing straight ahead when begin, you want to twist so your chest is to be pointing to the Left. Go as far as you feel comfortable, but don’t force it. Try to keep your legs and pelvis as still as you can. Gradually allow your body to twist back to the middle, but no further. Do 8 to 12 of these and make sure to repeat on the opposite side.
SPECIAL NOTE: For all the In the Gym: Cable and Dumbbell exercises pick a weight that you can do for 8 to 12 reps fairly comfortably and with perfect technique. After a couple of weeks of performing at this weight and with perfection, on then, move up to a slightly heavier weight that feels challenging once you get to that 8th or 12th rep. Once you feel absolutely confident in performing every rep with absolute perfection, only then, go to a heavier weight that is challenging you through out the set.
