This month on Trainer Tip Tuesday we will be discussing considerations when you are using the trunk rotation machine. The trunk rotation machine can be one of the most effective ways to build the strength of your core muscles, but you don’t want to do it haphazardly.

One misconception out there about doing any exercise is you have to have “perfect posture”… whatever that even means. In most cases it is implying that you sit up as tall as you can with your back appearing as straight as possible. However, there can be tremendous issues that come from using this posture while doing trunk rotation exercises.

So how should your posture be instead? This slight tweak that we show you this week can make a huge difference in how your body feels after doing trunk rotations.

Check out all of the details in this week’s episode of Trainer Tip Tuesday, and be sure to tune back in next week as we discuss considerations for the trunk rotation machine.
