Wood Chop Overview

The wood chop helps to keep your core strong and stable and improves the flexibility of the spine. This exercise also strengthens your upper and lower body and improves your balance and posture.

How to Do It

  1. Stand straight with your feet shoulder-width apart holding a dumbbell with both hands.
  2. Rotate your torso to the right and raise the dumbbell until it’s over the right shoulder (diagonally)
  3. Squat while rotating your torso to the left and bring the dumbbell diagonally across the body until it’s close to your left hip.
  4. Repeat and switch sides.

Tips on Wood Chop

  1. Engage your core during the exercise.
  2. Your feet and knees should be pointing in the same direction.
  3. Keep your arms straight, and breathe out as you twist your upper body (torso).
