March MATness Day 18: Spine Twist

Today’s cue is “wring it out.”  Spine twist is exactly that – a wringing out of the torso, led by the spine.  But how do we get that extra effort out of clients – how do we get them to twist as far as they can?


Try prompting clients to wring out their trunk like they would a wet towel.  This visual gives clients an idea of how vigorous the exercise should feel – how much work it actually, is when done properly.

If this sounds familiar, you’re not losing your marbles.  We included this imagery cue along with a breathing cue in an August 2017 post.  Check it out to help your clients really nail Spine Twist.
