March MATness – Saw

It’s hard to believe we are almost half way through March MATness! By now you have hopefully developed and devoted yourself to a daily practice of moving well. Today we are doing Spine Twist, which is similar to the rotational twist in Saw, except that your legs stay glued together. A great tool to keep you honest in your rotation is to put your feet up against a wall. As you are twisting, keep your feet pressing into the wall.

Spine Twist

  1. Sit tall with your legs long, thighs squeezing together and your feet flexed
  2. Arms are reaching to the sides creating as much length as you can from fingertip to fingertip with the shoulders anchored down your back
  3. Inhale, squeeze your glutes as you lift and lengthen your spine
  4. Maintain your height as you rotate to the right – the arms are moving only because of the rotation in the spine
  5. As you rotate, keep working the opposition of the arms, head to tailbone and the hips to heels
  6. Exhale twist back to center, inhale twist left. Repeat 3x each side
