On the tenth day of Christmas....

On the tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me....Mason twist!


Why is rocks:
The Mason Twist is great for opening up your oblique muscles (the muscles on the side of your stomach) and stretching your waistline. It's a really intense exercise for conditioning your abs, but it definitely builds muscle and pays off in the end.

How to do it:
 
To begin the Mason Twist, get a mat and sit on it with your knees bent straight out in front of you. While you are seated on your mat or floor, interlock your hands so that your hands are holding each other. With your hands clasped together, you rotate your body from one side to the other, and make sure that your legs that are straight out in front of you are slightly raised off the floor. Remember to keep your hips as stable as possible as you move from side to side and digging your hands into the ground as you rotate.

Tips
1. Make sure your knuckles touch the floor each time.
2.Breathe: Exhale when you twist toward the outside of your body, and inhale when you get to the center
