The Russian Twist Without Chubby Checkersky

Wikipedia definition:
The Russian Twist is a type of exercise that is used to work the abdomen muscles by performing a twisting motion on the abdomen. The exercise is believed by those who practice it to build explosiveness in the upper torso, which may help in sports such as swimming, baseball, track & field, hockey, golf, lacrosse, or boxing.

For we golfers, the Russian Twist can be a really great exercise to develop rotation and help with flexibility. It can be preformed in several ways, but a really good way is on a Balance or Stability Ball.

In this video we demonstrate it using a 65cm ball and an 8 pound double handled ball (PowerBall). Try this one.  The key is to keep you butt engaged and your head facing forward the entire time.  This exercise will also strengthen your "core" and improve rotation for a more solid golf stance and swing.
