Sculpt a Flat Stomach

Sculpt a flat stomach with the Side-to-Side Oblique Twist to Flutter Kicks to Chest Press exercise. This is an intermediate exercise and should be performed without weight prior to performing it with the balance board. StrongBoard Balance weighs only 15 pounds so will make for a great progressive transition. This exercise is primarily for the entire core musculature but will also work the chest and triceps.
