Hi, I'm Diane Severino and I'm going to doing a series of about four tutorials on two specific areas, the turning of the back and the churning of the hip to specific things. In one exercise I'll be showing you, we're going to be combining the two and they're all familiar exercises, but they're ones that I think you'll enjoy. Me giving it the Diane Spin. Without further ado, we're going to be working on one blue spring can be done on a red, but let's try and just clean up the technique. Now on this churning of the back of pulling with straps, I'm going to do it without the straps to begin with. Yeah, the torso, the torso is the one the park that motivates this movement. It's the torso.
The hips remain stationary and this is to give you more range of motion plus the strength when we add our hands in the strap. So it's a torsos that's going to be moving. So if we put our hands like you're a little teapot pulling up as tall as you can remember, the more you can pull up out of the waste, the more space or room you'll have in your torso, so we're twisting you, seeing how far you can go, and then you lift to come center and twist away and center and twist. Nothing's happening except my stomach being pulled in from below my waist. Yeah. All right. That's the action of the movement.
Somehow when the hands get put in the straps, the arms want to take over. This is just an isometric arm movement. The arms do not start the movement. This change of the back, the spiral is what inspires it. Right? I've been experimenting. I've used back strap, front strap.
Now this year I'm using both hands in the strap at the same time. All right. Remember we just did it without using the straps. Now you're sitting not too close. Not too far. Both hands. I have one palm over the other to stop me from gripping.
Now I'm trying initially for the setup to get as far twisted. Now this will depend on your range of motion to that back roller. I pull up and my waistline. Now I'm trying to get to the right foot rest corner and then I return it back. How am I doing it?
Because my torso is changing its direction and back and I'm thinking of the ribs changing and the ribs returning. You grow. I look nice. You know what? I got to prep because I saw this. I could see to you. I saw this. What? Why? What's wrong with that? I got prep and let me show you again.
You just moved your arms. See the sternum is in the center of your body. Hold on. Here's my prep. This is the center of your body. This is my sternum.
My arms are not going to come in front of my sternum or my flower. So here's the setup. C. Yeah. Now as I turn, I can turn only as far as my torso allows and then I return it. Nice. Big Inhale and return. See what I mean? Doesn't that look different than this?
No. Again, back roller. No. I have quite a good range there because I've been doing this right for so many years. There it is. Twist. I'll turn around so you get that other side gracefully pod in my back. And you know what? When you turn around, we remember which leg you had forward. I had my right leg leading I, I'm a righty. So usually do. When I turned around, I'm going to put the other foot in front, not too far.
Pulling up both straps, palm over, Palm, palm down. Get that glorious lift. I'm looking at that back roller. You know what point your toes. It's free and the torso. Watch that. See them wrinkles in my leotard. That's what you want to see other that rib cages twisting and now the opposite rib cage is coming forward and you expand the lungs and let the air out look at down the shoulders.
Our arms are into bent and they're not too straight. You're pulling and that tension and the straps just giving you a little more work. And I can almost feel like I have a Nice Cape or a nice, uh, what do you call it? Yeah, Cape. It's almost like a bullfighter. The torsos leading it. The arms follow this, something held over that arm.
It's very regal lift to turn the head just follows the spine. Here's my head moving it. That's going to motivate it from your head. No, the head just follows where the torso is. Remember the neck is part of the spine. Feel those lats pull down as you twist around, pointed toes, pointed those and pull. Oh yeah.
That'll whittle your waistline right there and left. Turn and pull. Higher and breast and center. Can you feel that? Feel that, feel that spiraling. Oh Wow. And around that really takes muscle to do only a waist exercise, not an arm. Oh, hey, Jaco twist.
That'll change so many different movements. We are going to explore this a little further. I'm going to lose my prop. Oh No. To Christy Cooper.
