PREPARATION DRILL, MODIFIED EXERCISE 9: MODIFIED BENT-LEG BODY TWIST
The starting position for this exercise is the supine position with the arms sideward or at 45 degrees to the body (according to profile limitations). Palms should face downward and knees bent at 90 degrees, with the feet flat on the floor. The head may be on the ground or elevated 1-2 inches depending on profile limitations. The Soldier assumes the starting position as in the bent-leg body twist, leaving the feet flat on the ground. (Figures 6-77 and 6-78).
