Oblique Twister

Step 1: Sit on your desk with your knees over the edge.

Step 2: Lean back to a 45-degree angle, or as far as you can while maintaining a neutral spine (no arch). Proper technique is essential in this exercise. If you can get to that 45-degree angle without arching your back, great; if not, don't. The moment your back begins to arch, you need to come forward to a point where you can hold the angle.

Step 3: Rotate your torso and touch the desk beside your right hip with both hands.

Step 4: Repeat to the left.

Step 5: Do 8-10 repetitions to each side.
