Dumbbell Woodchopper

How To Do A Dumbbell Woodchopper Exercise Demonstration Video and Guide

The dumbbell woodchopper is a functional total body exercise that strengthens your core.

To get started:

  1. With a stance just outside shoulder width, grab a dumbbell with both hands, contract your abs, and raise the dumbbell over one shoulder, with arms extended.
  2. To lower the dumbbell, bend your knees, twist your torso, then under control, explosively move your arms across your body and down to the opposite foot, with your arms straight.
  3. Focus on maintaining a flat back. Do not round your back.
  4. Think about the movement you would use to chop a tree with an axe.
  5. Reverse the movement back to the original position.
  6. Complete the reps on one side, then repeat with the other side.
