Balance with a twist

Voight is a freelance fitness writer and creator of her own line of fitness DVDs.

Performing twists can help correct imbalances you may have between the right and left sides of your body. They can also add strength and power to your core and your upper body muscles.

1 Stand with your legs wide apart (feet should be a little wider than shoulder width). Inhale, hinge at your hips and lean forward, placing your fingertips on the floor. Maintain a long spine, knees straight.

2 Keep your hips level and your knees straight as you exhale and slowly rotate your upper spine to the right. Raise your right arm directly above your right shoulder, turning your chest toward the ceiling. Pause for 20 to 30 seconds. Lower your right hand to the floor and repeat by twisting to the left.
