How to Do a Gate Swing Shoulder Twist

Work Your Obliques, Booty, and Legs — All in 1 Move

Get ready to work your core, legs, and booty — all while stretching your shoulders and back, and getting your heart rate up with some cardio. This move does it all!

Here's how to do a gate swing with a shoulder-stretching twist:

  • Begin standing with your feet together. Hop your feet wide apart, and come into a deep squat, bringing your hands to your thighs. Your toes will be pointed outward.
  • With your hands on your thighs, rotate your abdomen to the left, dipping your right shoulder toward the center. Then rotate to the right, bringing your left shoulder down and center. Return to a neutral position with your spine and shoulders.
  • Push off your knees for leverage as you jump your legs together to complete one rep.
  • Repeat as many times as possible for at least 60 seconds.
