Back Exercises: Seated Rotation

To start, sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Shift your weight slightly forward to avoid rounding your back. Relax, and keep your ears, shoulders, and hips aligned.

  • Fold your arms, elbows just below shoulder height.

  • Turn from the waist with hips forward. Turn your head last.

  • Hold for a count of 5. Return to starting position.

  • Repeat 5 times on one side. Then switch sides.
