Exercise of the Week for April 5, 2010

Posted on 05. Apr, 2010 in Exercises

Two Handed Wood Chop

Stand holding a 5 or 8 pound dumbbell in both hands next to your right ear.  Brace your abs and rotate your torso to the left as you extend your arms and lower the dumbbell to the outside of your left knee. Lift it back to the start position.  That is one rep.   Be sure to engage our abs/core throughout the ENTIRE exercise movement.  Do 10 reps, then repeat on the opposite side for same amount of reps. 

Do this exercise at least 3 times per week.  If you don’t have a dumbbell, use a large water bottle, bleach bottle and work your way up to weights.  Don’t start off at 8 lbs. if you have never done this exercise before.  Start with out any weight, the next session, use a water bottle and go slowly.  If you ever feel any pain, stop immediately.   Time to get ready for  swimsuit and tank top season which is on its way!
