Horizontal Cable Rotation

by Billy Santana


One of the best three-dimensional core strength exercises. Stand with feet wider than shoulder width. Hold the cable handle out in front of you at rib cage level, and rotate from just outside your inside foot to just outside your outer foot. It is not necessary to rotate completely 180 degrees. Keep your arms extended as much as possible. Drive the weight through the lift-off fast, but return the weight slowly. It may help to think of hitting a home run during the concentric (lift) phase.

Billy Santana IDEA Author/Presenter

Hello there! My name is Billy Santana. I am currently a wellness coach and personal trainer with the YMCA of South Florida and I own a mobile Personal Training and Lifestyle Coaching business. I've been in the fitness industry for 4 years, but my experience with fitness dates back to when I was in the U.S. Military starting in 2002. I grew up being overweight because my family never put a big emphasis on sports or recreational physical activity. I simply didn't know any better. I excelled at academics and computer games, but my health was declining rapidly. Following the advice of my doctors and the urging of my self-conscious, I decided to do something about it. I enlisted in the U.S. Army, and exercise and smart food choices became a part of my daily life. Since that time, I have completed a Bachelor's degree in Sport & Exercise Science and currently hold a position where I can touch many lives on a daily basis and counsel people toward moving in the right direction with their health and fitness. Feel free to get in touch with me using the "Contact Billy" button and I will reply at my next opportunity. Thanks for checking out my profile!
