Dumbbell side roll

This a different torso strengthener. Instead of the standard upper-body rotation. the lower body is rotated. This is accomplished by stabilizing the upper body with weights. The muscles being used are internal and external obliques, quadratus lumborum and upperbody stabilizers. Notice the difference this exercise makes in bent knee spinning, control and landings.

The Details
1. Lying on back, bend knees to 90 degree flexion.
2. Stabilize upper-body by holding on to dumbbells
3. Rotate knees to left then to right.
4. For more advanced, slightly straighten legs.
Instead of feet off the ground. Try keeping them down and reduce the amount of side to side rotation.
