Cable Seated Twist

Instructions

Preparation

Grasp stirrup and straddle bench orientated with side facing medium height cable pulley. Sit with feet on floor. Hold onto stirrup with both hands with arms extending out straight toward stirrup.

Execution

Keeping arms straight, rotate torso to opposite side until cable makes contact with shoulder. Return to original position and repeat. Continue with opposite side.

Comments

Slightly squeeze legs on sides of bench to prevent shifting. Bench should be far enought away from cable pulley so cable is taunt when stirrup is turned back toward cable pulley. See side view and Spot Reduction Myth.
