Squat with Oblique Twist

To do the Squat with Oblique Twist, start standing tall with your feet between hip-width and shoulder-width apart. You can place your hands on your shoulders or up by your head with your elbows out.

Then sit back and squat down, dropping to about parallel to the ground. Make sure your heels stay down as you sit down and back as low as you can.

Drive back up to standing and, as you do, tuck one knee up as you rotate your opposite elbow toward your knee. It’s almost as if you’re marching up and rotating toward that leg. You may crunch slightly but you don’t just want to round over. You want to tuck your knee up as high as you can as you rotate toward that leg.

Put the foot back down and repeat the squat before tucking and twisting to the other side.
