Full-Contact Twist

Start: Load a barbell lightly on one end. Wrap the other end in a towel and stick it into a corner of your workout room. Stand facing the loaded end, lock your fingers around the end of the bar, and hold it in front of your face.

Finish: Pivot your feet and torso simultaneously to move the top of the bar down and to your nondominnant side so it ends up just above your nondominant knee. Feel your torso muscles work as you lift the bar up and then down toward your other knee. That's 1 repetition.
