With the 2014 Winter X Games storming down on snowy Aspen Colorado this weekend, we wanted to show you a few exercises to maximize your pow-shredding potential. To dominate in the X Games, athletes need to fire from an arsenal of mind-bending movements that require incredible core strength and rotational power. This exercise progression helps to develop rotational power and core strength, perfect for landing the elusive Double McTwist 1260.
Watch the following three movements in the video above, shot by TRX Rip Training creator Pete Holman, live from the X Games.
1. Rip Rotation (straight arm)
2. Rip Squat Rotation
3. Rip Jump Rotation
Whether you’re training to become a better athlete, or you just want to tone your midsection and protect the spine, try this rotation series and make your body your machine.
