We use this exercise to accomplish our program demands when it calls for a core movement in the transverse plane. The great part about this exercise is that it uses both rotational and anti-rotational resistance a little extra stimulation when done right.
Purpose: This is exercise allows for core stabilization & rotary power development without much fatigue from that extremities that sometimes acts as limitations. Being able to squeeze the med ball drives the point home of core activation
• Properly secure band to wall and attach both ankle cuffs around 1 wrist (the outside wrist)
• Assume an athletic position while holding the med ball in between your arms with hands clasped
• Pivot on the inside foot while forcefully rotating to face the adjacent wall
• Slowly return to the starting position focusing on resisting the pull of the band.
