Essential Trunk Twist for Relieving Repetitive Stress

Stretch the core muscle groups in your trunk with a twist.
  • Isolate the trunk and twist at the hip.
  • Take one arm and reach across your chest. Twist in that direction.
  • Drop your other hand and use it to reach behind your back.
  • Twist to the other side while switching arm positions.
  • Repeat a few times.

Now you are really working the trunk and loosening up the spine, which are both crucial to good balance and circulation.
