2. Wood Chops
Works: front and sides of shoulders, plus front and sides of abs
1. Stand with feet hip-width apart, abs tight. With both hands, grip the ends of one medium dumbbell. Place your arms straight down toward the floor with hands and the dumbbell in front of your left hip. Knees should be slightly bent.
2. Without arching your back, rotate your torso and pivot onto the ball of your left foot as you turn slightly toward the right. Keep both arms straight while you raise them diagonally across your body from your left hip to overhead on your right side. Hold for two seconds, keeping abs tight.
3. Slowly return to starting position. Do five to 10 reps; switch sides.
