High to Low Wood Chop
- Holding an eight- to 10-pound dumbbell overhead, twist to the left, pivoting your right foot as needed.
- Exhale and slice the dumbbell across your body to the right as you raise your right knee, bringing the weight to the outside of your right hip.
- Raise the weight back to starting position and lightly tap your right toes to the floor. This completes one rep. Do three sets of 15 reps on each side.
This variation of the wood chop also works the core and the arms.
