Sit down and pivot the seat in the desired direction then place the inside of your forearms against the padding to hold the grips.

Start by tensing your core and twisting across as far as comfortable. Then at a controlled pace, return to the start position. Keep your lower body stil throughout the movement. Repeat for the desired repetitions then switch sides.
