Torso Rotation Drill:  Step 1

Sit on top a bench with your legs together and a Power Ball (a weighted ball, about the size of a basketball, used for strength training drills) extended in front of you just below chest height. Slowly rotate to one side contracting your abdominal muscles, keeping your arms extended as if you were placing the ball on the floor beside you without bending your arms and without lifting your buttocks off the bench. Rotate as far as possible, then slowly return to the start position and repeat.
 
Assisted Abdominal Crunch

If you have an ab roller (a training device that holds your head and shoulders in place as you exercise your abdominal region), lie flat on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor, grab the ab roller, and crunch your abdominal muscles, rocking forward and tightening your abs. If you dont have an ab roller, placing your hands behind your head and keeping your neck straight while crunching your abdominal muscles achieves the same results.

Obilique Crunch
