Are you finding it difficult to work out those abs on the road?
Hope isn’t lost. This trunk twist ab exercise for truckers is simple, but packs a punch. Learn how to do it:
Quick Video Recap
Trunk twists, also sometimes called Russian Twists, are a good ab exercise for truckers that look easier than they really are. In this video, Derek adds some extra resistance using a small medicine ball, but added weight is not necessary. In fact, we recommend beginning without any at all.
How to do the Trunk Twist Ab Exercise for Truckers
Sit on a yoga mat with your knees bent and ankles on the floor. Hold your hands (either with or without a medicine ball) in front of you at chest level and rotate your shoulders from side to side, working your core. We recommend doing about 20-25 reps and 3-4 sets. Want some added difficulty? Add weight, or lift your feet off the floor. The required balance will make this ab exercise even harder!
