Standing Elastic Rotations

This is an excellent exercise for any racquet sport, golf, or baseball and softball.

  1. Place an elastic tubing at waist height in a door with the fit loop.
  2. Stand facing sideways to the door.
  3. Grab both handles together in both hands with arms straight in front of your body.
  4. Stand with a wide stance, and move far enough away from the door so that there is tension on the elastic.
  5. Pull the elastic across your body, as if you were swinging a baseball bat, using your obliques (waistline muscles), and turn torso so that chest now faces away from the door.
  6. The foot closest to the door should pivot so that hips can turn with the spine.
  7. Do both right and left sides.
