Split Stance Chop – Rotation, 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 and torso. 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 work to rotate your body away from the anchor.
  • COMPENSATION: Control the resistance on the way down, don’t let it snap back down. Make sure to perform this in a downward diagonal motion.
