Cable Wood Chops (Downwards Torso Twist)

Any form of wood chops is a good exercise for the obliques but using the cable really helps increase the effectiveness because of the constant resistance throughout the range of motion. These cable wood chops allow you to really work your obliques as you twist across your body at around 180 degrees. Cable wood chops can be used as part of a dynamic warm-up or as an exercise to help tone and strengthen the oblique muscles. The way you perform cable wood chops is going to be determined by your fitness goals.
