Weighted Side Touches Instructions

  1. Set up for the weighted side touches by placing a mat on the floor and placing a bench (or something else to rest your feet under) at one end.
  2. Lay down on the mat and put your feet under the support.
  3. Grip your weight plate and hold it out in front of your body with your arms slightly bent.
  4. Pull your upper body up, with your back straight, so that it's at about a 30 degree angle to the floor.
  5. Keeping your back straight, twist at the torso moving the weight plates slowly from side to side.

​Exercise Tips:

  1. Slow the exercise down for the best results.
  2. Start out with a light weight. Increase the weight used as your abs become stronger for additional benefit.
