Video 380 | Anti-Rotation Workout (30 Minutes) with Lauren Eirk
On the Ball • 23-Nov-2022
Anti-rotation is given to exercises that requires us to resist motion. When the resistance from an exercise is trying to cause trunk rotation, it’s the core’s job to prevent that from happening. The core has two tasks. 1) Prevent movement and 2) Transfer forces from the upper and lower body.
In this workout, we will be using the stabilty ball and dumbbells to set up several "anti-rotation" exercises using asymmetrical loading and unilateral motions. Spinal stabilization is the focus of this workout. Experience supine, prone and seated exercises using the stability ball and dumbbells.
When your core is strong and you’re properly bracing the trunk, you will notice that you can move faster and deal with more resistance. A stronger, stable spine is essential for injury prevention, especially when it comes to the lower back.
