Weekly Wednesday Workout: Wood Chops

Today we are going to work those arms and obliques!

I first learned about wood chops in The Biggest Loser Wii Game, however when you add a reasonably heavy dumbbell it is a game changer! I tried these out at home with my dumbbell and was shocked at how quickly I felt it–everywhere! What I really like is that she shows proper form in the video which is important–especially the follow through. It is definitely a move that take a bit of practice but once you get in a good groove you are in for a great workout!

I am also hanging out on BalanceBar.com talking about ways to refresh your spring workout routine!

Have you ever tried Wood Chops?

I do these with my 21 Fix workout program. When you do them properly they get you sore!!

Woodchops + kettlebells = love to hate but very effective work!

Yes, I’ve done wood chops but I don’t do them often – for some reason that is a hard move for me. I guess that probably means I should do them more often.

The first thing I thought when I saw this was Jillian Michaels and then I read the bit about The Biggest Loser! 🙂

I can feel how that would feel! And I bet it would be even worse for me. I can’t wait to read your Balance Bar piece!

I think this workout is in one of my bootcamp videos (miss those so much right now!) Though there is far more info on correct form with this vid. Thanks for sharing Nellie!
