Wakeboard Workout Wednesday #59 – Barbell Torque

The Wakeboard Workout for this week is another great core exercise.  This exercise is the called the barbell torque.  The barbell torque is a rotational exercise that will work your entire core region at one time.

The only piece of equipment that you will need for this exercise is a barbell.

Begin by placing the barbell in a wall corner.  (I just put the barbell against a wall for filming purposes.)  If you have access to a “Landmine,” this is a great exercise to use with the landmine.

Holding the bar at arm’s length, set your feet so that they are shoulder width apart.

Engaging your core and keeping your elbows as straight as possible, rotate your shoulders slightly to the right as you start to lower the bar down towards your right hip.

When the bar reaches approximately the height of your right hip, bring the bar back up overhead.

Pause for a split second at the top, and then repeat the motion to the left side.

Watch the video below to see the barbell torque in action.

The key to this exercise is to only move one hand at a time while keeping the rest of your body completely motionless.
