Tip: Tight Cable Torso Rotation with Hip Shift

This dynamic variation of the cable check is great for athletes, producing high levels of power and strength.

This variation has four adjustments: a wider stance, a weight shift as you rotate, reduced rotational range of motion, and a rotation that involves both the hip and shoulders instead of just the shoulders.

The wider stance gives you a larger base of support, which allows you to move heavier loads and provides a greater strength challenge to your torso muscles. Keeping your torso nearly perpendicular to the cable maintains high levels of rotational tension, helping you make better use of your time.

Lastly, we move the hips in the same direction and at the same speed as your shoulders, which is similar to how we produce high levels of power and strength in athletics.
