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 of the most common ways people set themselves up for injury on this machine is by trying to put their starting position too far into trunk rotation. This can leave you feel achy, beat up, and sore after doing this exercise as well as decrease the positive strength changes you can see.

Fortunately, there is a very easy solution to make sure you are not choosing the wrong starting position for yourself when you use the trunk rotation machine. Not only can this tip make it less likely that you injure yourself, it can also help you to feel less achy and beat up overall as a result of using this machine.

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.
