Muscles Worked in Horizontal Wood Chops
Primary muscles worked:
How to Do Horizontal Wood Chops
- Fasten an elastic band at shoulder height. Grip the band with both hands, step away, and stand sideways to the band’s anchor point.
- With almost straight arms, make a sweeping, horizontal movement to your other side.
- Return to the starting position in a controlled manner.
Horizontal wood chop trains the rotating function of your oblique abdominal muscles. To also train their flexing function, you can attach the band to a higher point, and perform the movement diagonally downwards.
