Exercise of the Month: Cable Woodchops

on June 15, 2018

This is a great explosive exercise that will help develop strength and power in your chest, core, and shoulders.

  1. Ensure the pulley is at shoulder height with a handle attached.
  2. Stand sideways to the cable machine and grasp the handle with both hands.
  3. Take the strain of the weight and hold your arms out in front at 90 degrees.
  4. While maintaining good posture, rotate your body away from the machine. Keep your arms at a 90-degree angle. As you rotate, try to keep your abs tense at all times.
  5. Slowly allow the weight to return to the starting position.
  6. Repeat as many times as needed or to failure.
  7. Once complete, reposition and repeat the same series on the opposite side.
