Exercise of the Day!

Medicine ball decline twist
Target Muscles: obliques, rectus femoris, iliopsoas, satorius.

Set up - Sit on a decline bench with your feet under the rollers and a medicine ball at your sternum.
Action - Keeping your back straight, lean away from your legs until your body makes a 45-degree angle. Hold here and twist to one side. As you twist to one side, bounce the ball on the floor, catch it, then twist to the opposite side and repeat.
Technique tip: As you fatigue, you’re going to want to round your back. Keep your chest and chin lifted and back straight to get the most out of the move.
