5 HIIT Workouts With Weights To Burn Fat
#2 Russian Twist
The Russian twist tones the entire abdomen region with increased intensity. Moreover, with its unique motion, it is very effective in toning the obliques.
Step 1: Sit on the floor with feet placed close together. Bend your knees such that the legs form an arch with the floor and secure the weight plate on the sides with both the hands. Ensure that the arms are fully extended throughout the duration of the exercise.
Step 2: Gradually twist your torso to the left until the weight plate touches the floor. Do not bend your back while performing this motion.
Step 3: Pause for a second and return to the initial position. Perform the same motion on the other side to complete one rep.
Repeat the exercise for the recommended number of times.
Important tip: People with a history of lower back problems must exercise caution while performing the Russian twists.
