  1. Sit on the floor with your knees and hips bent to a 90 degree angle so that your shins are parallel with the ceiling.
  2. Hold a weight plate with your arms extended to one side.
  3. Lean back so your torso is at a 45 degree angle and use your abs to twist your torso as far as you can in one direction before reversing the motion and returning to the starting position to prepare to twist in the opposite direction. Perform the number of prescribed repetitions.
