8 Anti-Rotational Exercises for a Bulletproof Core

Video taken from the channel: Strongertmr Training

The key with this move is to control the drive so nothing moves but your knees and hips from extended to flexed positions. I like supersetting these moves, performing 2-3 sets of 5 each side with the single-knee drive, and then 2-3 sets of 8-10 with double-knee drive. These really get the core burning!

  • Flexibility is something we should definitely all concentrate on especially for the later years of our lives in order for us to have mobility, as a former dancer I needed to be really flexible, but I’ve never stopped stretched since my dancing ended because it’s become a part of my life if you’ve never done a stretch or yoga class before, I have the perfect beginners workout “stretching for beginners” to get you started and plenty more

  • I LOVE your video… been doing your hip figure 8s everyday since I found this video / you!! Would you please be willing to do a video of just hip figure 8s? I’d love to do this longer… and it is so helpful when I do it while watching you doing it!! Thank you for considering it.

  • Bollywood dancing / belly dance fusion thing here. This helped get rid of my stiff lower back. Im doing this everyday til i get the hang of it.

  • Any advice for flat feet? I don’t have arch in my feet especially in right and because of that my knees are “running” inside when i do squats for example.

  • I have not exercised in years. At 50, I am raising my 3 boys and I am so stiff and out of shape. I joined a prayer movement that involves exercise and asked me to exercise 1 hour a day. I found this workout and love it! It felt so good to move even for a little, and I plan to continue with this every day to get going in the morning. Thank you so much!

  • Thank you just started to exercise to lose some belly fat and did your exercises. Used to exercise but before. Not done in a few months.

  • Many many many ���������������������������� thanks miss. I am going to begin today because I have pain in my mentiras. I pray that it should help. Workout fun. ❤❤❤❤❤✌������‍♀️����‍♀️��������

  • I sincerely thank you for taking time to do this video and showing how to do the moves. I turned 60 years old on 6/20 and made a commitment to myself to get as close to size 10 as possible. Grateful Liz King

  • Hi I just saw your video for the first time. A little about me: I’m 62, very obese, and diabetic. I started in January to change my eating and I was 227 and am currently 203. I’ve hit a plateau and I’m stuck on 203. I saw an ad of a 62 old woman who used your workout and she looks amazing. I’d like to try it. As you can see 203 is still a lot to move like you move. How do I know if I’m doing it right? Do you have videos for obese people like me? How and when can I start? Hope it’s not a lot to ask and look forward to hearing from you.

  • My friend recommended this for a while, loving the results, trying to lose belly fat as well and Loving this exercise, do it every morning

  • I am 65 years old. Tried it out and it’s fantastic. Have years in the gym but due to corona I don’t go and this perfect for the core. By the way your teaching method is perfect. Greetings from Germany. ������������

  • Hi… I would just like to say thank you… I have inoperable hip issues, walking distances and standing are difficult for me. I have seen quite a bit of figure 8 info lately and thought it looked wonderful but I thought it would be out for me… but I gave your 15 min workout a try… I’m amazed… after only doing it for 4 days I have more flexibility and slight easy of walking discomfort… I’m in.. the pain of the last decade has seen my fitness whittle away… I will continue to do your 15 min workout until I feel ready to move to the next level… thank you.. I’m 63

  • I really like this! I have some latin dance background but I’m old now (59). This teacher is very thorough yet not too fast or too slow! Great music too! This is for me!

  • Dr. Bri, this was such a fun exercise! I didn’t think I’d be sweating and feeling it but I was wrong! I loved it. Please post more videos like this. Thank you so much

  • Just started and I’ll see how it goes. Did it twice today so far. I really like how this feels. I have a gut and I’m trying to get rid of it. Thanks for sharing these videos. I’ll be checking your other ones out as well. I really like this one though. You don’t have to go at it real hard at first but later once I start to lose the gut, I’m sure I’ll be able to put more into it. I also have fibromyalgia in my hips so I’ll see tomorrow when I get up how it feels for me. I’m hoping I’ll be back! Again, thanks for sharing these videos. ❤️��

  • Hi I just did your work out for the first time and I loved it. Just a quick question… when you are just doing the slow movements to cool down etc should you still have your core muscles engaged or just be relaxed?

  • I found this yesterday and tried it, okay so I didn’t finish as I had to shower and start work, Lock-down work May 20, but girl by lunchtime my side abs were burning wow. I’m so continuing with this. You made it so easy and loved the way you broke it all down!! ��

  • Thank you for this video! I love doing it daily, especially now that I’m always at home. Helps with tightening my core. I feel it, and see it. ❤

  • I love your video training. I usually am afraid of exercise but this set o exercise actually helps me to feel good. However, I just wonder if this can hurt the lower spine. Just wonder the 8 “twisting” action would twist the lower and lumber spine…can you please advise?

  • I first did this months ago (probably last last year?) and just did again. I forgot how much I enjoyed it. I have spinal stenosis so I need to be careful about what type of exercises I do. This is perfect for me. It’s fun, I get a workout and it feels really good.

  • I did it this morning in the ladies toilets in front of the mirror. �� I have osteoarthritis and am menopausal so really need this. Can’t swim on lockdown. Thankyou.

  • Thank you for this workout. I’ve been wanting to get back into something physical and this is so easy to follow.First one done this morning and looking forward to doing it on a daily basis. Stay safe:)

  • Love it! ❤️ perfect beginner/re-starter into exercising/moving! I’ve been stale for a few years, re-gained weight, feeling awful…. and here you ARE with these wonderful moves! �� Thank you! ��

  • These are essentially basic bellydance moves. I’m not sure why that isn’t referenced at all. It’s nicely put together, I like additional text and the direction arrows very helpful:)

  • I love this, I’ve been doing this everyday for about 2 weeks….I’ve always been a ridged mover and this has really helped my body to relax into the moves.

  • These are ideal even if you’re not very active. If you want to improve your health, lift your mood and get motivation, do this workout.

  • I have been wondering what figure 8 was, and whether I could do this, being a senior and all. Now I finally know. I enjoyed this. Thank you so much!!!!

  • Omg thank you. This is helping my 77 year old stiff body! I believe this will help me get my flexibility back. Thank you so very much!

  • I am 68yrs old and have very stiff hips,, I have been doing the Figure 8 workout for 5 days,, my hips feel great, I must be doing it right.. I love this workout. Can you tell me the name of the music please… Many thanks……

  • I have several conditions, which means I suffer with chronic pain daily. Over the years I have become less and less active, which means the pounds have piled on. I am always on the look out for some sort of exercise that I could do, that wouldn’t take so much of my energy. I am going to try this tomorrow.

  • Thank you sooooooo much for this! I’m so out of shape so these is a great start for me! I’m sure it will get better in time as I watch more of your videos and work on it myself!

  • For an animal that has evolved to be a bipedal unilateral mover, and it’s success was me all through by walking with an erected spine, this is not just dumb but but rather counter intuitive. Why do you want to move like a monkey when that was the thing that you left behind in the evolution. Your body is not made for this. If you think otherwise compare your anatomy to monkeys. Clearly you are not a good walker/runner.

  • I remember when I first started doing movements like these… it was weird, it felt strange, where was the barbell and dumbbells? But it also felt oh so natural, and oh so good. The more I did them the more freedom I felt in my mind and body. That was enough convincing for me…. but here’s some reasons why I chose these 5…

    Hinge to Sieza Opening up hip hinge, forward fold, squat, and deep knee and ankle flexion. Great warmup
    Crawl Switch Under Crawl position lights up the core muscles, to smoothly transition from front to back takes massive contralateral strength from hips and shoulders
    Cartwheel Side bending and Hand support (Handstand), spacial awareness, challenging from the squat
    Roll Ability to fold the spine and yield to the ground. Much harder than it looks.
    Bear Walk Contralateral Pattern while opening thoracic extension, shoulder flexion, AND hamstring flexibility

    Those are all the more technical aspects but all in all these are varied movement patterns that help us maintain our human beingness ��

  • I started trying to follow but was immediately mesmerized. I had to stop & just watch all the way through. Really helped me see the proper positioning & muscle groups working with each movement

  • For the shoulder-roll; th arm of the shoulder you roll over should always end up on the inside of the knee at the end… to avoid kneeing your self in the face when doing it to break a fall. You fall, do a roll to protect yourself, and end up hurting yourself, yourself. Parkour!

  • I love it
    .so nice..i will it everyday,I am almost 60 but in what to stay healthy and in good good shape..grazie per quest video..baci

  • Bildiğin namaz hareketleri bunlar. Bunlarda anlamış namazın faydalarını ama direk söyleyemiyorlar. Birde abdest aldınmı al sana on numara meditasyon ��

  • Love it. I’m 62. Worked out with weights all my life. Now at this age I carry the good mass into it. So that’s all good. But two years ago I started some deep squat holds every morning and MY GOSH it has changed my life. Unreal. Now I’ve seen this video and I have some new challenges. I’m not quite ankle stretched enough and I’m off to go make it happen. Thanks dude.

  • Every muscle and fibre of your body is absolutely beautiful and you move in a graceful flow of strength, of power and dance… just so inspiring! I love the calm, zen-like quality of your voice and videos. Starting my day with you gets me in the right headspace… so happy to have found you! Have a beautiful day!

  • excellent thanks for posting sincerely these dynamic strength building exercises will serve the body exponentially in myriad ways:)

  • I just got turned on to your videos this very day. 55+ yo, mountain biker, weight lifter, fused ankle from the Army, 4+ knee operations, has worked at a desk for years and I’m ready for a change…and you my friend initiated that. I gotta get more flexible. The right knee hasn’t seen a full squat in decades and may never but it it can get more flexible and that will compliment my regular activity of mountain biking. I’ll never have that physique but I guarantee I’ll keep my ticker ticking longer because of your encouragement. mountain biking is my passion….’as always’

  • great but camera moveing is distracting and you should go over the moves first. hard to get the benefit when im focused on trying to master the move.

  • 60 years old. Been doing a dance with fitness for 45+ years. Seen a ton over that period of time, tried a lot of it. This video makes me smile. The production values are superb…the content even moreso. ‘Getting older’/’aging’ is a battle you need to be prepared to fight. (Apologies for the harsh framing.) Maybe the most important element of preparing for this battle is mobility. (Especially vital past the age of 50.) You’re providing an amazing resource here. Advice that everyone genuinely concerned about their fitness, their physical integrity should subscribe to your channel to receive. Thanks for this.

  • I am rehabilitating my body doing exactly these exercises so hard If you can do it don’t stop and if you can’t do it push and try till you can with time and pressure EVERYTHING GIVES!

  • I’m here to see if there’s anything i can do to improve my ankles, but not because they aren’t up to standard but because i wonder if this could help me with my club feet issues. But as a result my bones and feet aren’t what they should be.

  • Do you do any other workouts besides primal movements and balance stretching? Do you still play ball? Are you on any kind of diet?

  • At 3:50 “Establish the arch in one foot”
    What does it mean and how do I do establish the arch?
    Also thanks a lot for making this! Working my ankles out

  • I just subscribe to your channel, after watching this video, definitely I need this body moves exercise.. I’m really motivated, l love the combinations of steps,easy to follow..

  • This all looks like a great workout…and it’s very ‘inspirational’ to see your physiques and how you move…makes me want to try this workout… but…when I did try to follow along…it became clear to me that this is a ROUTINE that all three of you already know very well… your Muscle Memory take over and therefore makes it all look so effortless.

    But for those of us who’ve never done this Routine, it is impossible to follow, especially if we want to get it more or less correct. You need to break it down more, slow down the pace, etc.

    So unfortunately, for me, this video doesn’t work….
