Split Stance Chop – Bar

  • HOW: Begin in a split stance position with the leg towards the anchor in front. Grab onto the bar which should be anchored from above. While holding onto the bar with both hands perform a chop motion diagonally downwards away from the anchor moving your arms while keeping the torso stationary. Slowly return to starting position and repeat.
  • FEEL: You should feel the muscles on the outside of your shoulders and shoulder blades working. You should also feel your core muscles.
  • COMPENSATION: Don’t rotate your trunk as you pull the bar up, stay facing forwards. Make sure to perform this in a downward diagonal motion.
