Rotary Torso Machine

The rotary torso machine on the Curves Circuit is great for strengthening your oblique muscles which help to support your spine, especially while sitting and standing. By rotating your trunk against resistance, you can help to strengthen your core, with your obliques (side abdominal muscles) the primary muscle worked out.

How to use the rotary torso machine

Enter the rotary torso machine from behind. Use the handles below for support. Place your knees on the knee pads so that they touch the side pads. Grasp the handles in front of you. Be sure to keep your head and chest up, while your shoulders are down and relaxed. Push your pelvis forward slightly to avoid arching your back. Keeping your shoulders and chest facing forward, rotate only your lower body by pushing one hip forward at a time. Immediately push the other hip forward, engaging your core throughout the entire movement.
