Training your upper body to work independently from your lower body requires good coordination and flexibility. Bowling often requires your upper body to move in a different direction than your lower body, and hip circles will help your body get used to the idea.

In this premium video, Leah Zahner, Certified Personal Trainer (NASM), demonstrates how to do hip circles and why you should work them into your workout routine.

Hip Circles: Step 1

Start with your feet shoulder-width apart and cross your hands over your shoulders.
