Happy Friday 🙂
Where are the weeks going?! I can’t believe it’s Friday again already! The weekend forecast is amazing here and I can’t wait to spend it in the sun with some good friends and my main squeeze 😉 Not that I don’t love visiting family and friends away, but I am sure looking forward to a weekend with no travel. Patio drinks are in order tonight but first… I’ll be getting in my Fit Friday!
Fit Friday: The Wood Chop
AKA: Wood chopper; Standing Wood Chop
Weight: 6-10 lb medicine ball (or dumbbell)
Reps: 3 sets of 12-15 incorporated into a circuit or as part of any workout.
1. Start in a standing position, feed hip width apart, core engaged. Squat and slightly rotate your torso to bring the weight down by your left hip.
2. From the squat, rise into a standing position while rotating your torso in the opposite direction and bringing the weight overhead, to the right.
3. Return to position 1. and repeat 12-15 times. Give your other side the same love.
*Tip: Gently pause in positions 1 and 2 to keep the work in your core.
