The Seated Russian Twist has the following benefits:

  • Golf muscles trained: Obliques, Lower Back, Abdominals, and Deep Core Stabilizers
  • Exercise benefits: Ideal for improving power in your golf swing.
Here is how to perform the exercise:

Step 1: Sit on the floor with knees bent, feet and knees together, heels pressed to floor, and toes pointed upward.

Step 2: Clasp the hands together and place in front of the stomach (as in the photo above).

Step 3: Lean back until the abdominals "turn on." (If you do not feel the abdominals contract, you gain little from this exercise.)
