STANDING CHOP Works waist, obliques, lower back, glutes, legs
Stand with feet hip-width apart. Extend left arm overhead, right hand resting on hip (as shown). Keeping core engaged for balance and left knee soft,
bring right knee up and pull left arm down in a controlled chopping motion, aiming for the outside of the knee with your elbow, for one count.
Return to start for two counts; aim for 8 to 12 reps on each side. For an extra challenge, hold a two-pound weight in the "chopping" hand. Note: If
you can't reach your elbow all the way to your knee, simply go as far as feels comfortable.
