Wood Chop With Cable Pulley Machine

  • Attach the double rope handle onto the cable. Set the weight to 15 pounds.
  • Stand your left side toward the machine about two feet from the machine. Grab the handle and open feet to a stable and wide stance.
  • Exhale, pull abs to spine, and rotate torso to pull cable down to the outside of your right knee while simultaneously bending it. Imagine you're swinging an axe across your body.
  • Keep your arms straight, and do not round your back.
  • Reverse the motion, controlling the weight on the cable as you return to the starting position. This completes one rep.
  • Do 12 reps on each side for three sets.

This move is great for the obliques.
