8/15/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 12. August 2013 07:49

One of my favorite exercises that work’s a variety of muscle groups is called woodchop (or squat with diagonal woodchop).

You stand with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart, holding a weighted medicine ball above your head (starting to the left or right of your head).  Contract your abs (to engage your abs muscle, and to protect your back from injury).  Now, bend your knees to squat down while moving the ball in an arc in front of your body, bringing the ball to the outside of your calf.  Next, reverse the move to the opposite side, and repeat the entire move .Keep abs tightly engaged though out.

You’ll find this exercise tweaks your quadriceps, your glutes, your hamstrings, your abs, and your deltoids.  A workout powerhouse!
