Russian Twist

Russian Twist Benefits

  • Russian twists strengthen your core, obliques, and spine. Obliques are the muscles which connects your lats and abs these muscles help in twisting or turning our upper body. The Russian bend is useful for strengthening oblique muscles, but some physiotherapists do not recommend this exercise, claiming that the back hump in the half-sitting position puts pressure on the discs. Although advanced athletes are doing the exercise correctly, it is not recommended for beginners.
