Cable_Wood_Chop_Low_to_High_1

Cable Wood Chop Low to High

Grab a handle on a pulley machine or grab a dumbbell with both hands. Crouch down and bring the handle to your side low towards the ground. As you rise, with your arms straight, bring the weight or handle across your body diagonally toward the sky on the opposite side of your body. You need to transfer the weight from one leg to the other during the move so you do not just focus on the upper body. Do one side and then the other.
