The trunk connects the shoulder girdle and the pelvic girdle.
Twisting the trunk is effective if the pelvic girdle is fixed, and the shoulder girdle is rotated with a good grip. Such a twist helps the muscles of the trunk and is good for the digestive and excretory systems. The posture also helps the shoulders, the joints and the arms.
