Half Kneeling Chop

Half Kneeling Chop

  • HOW: Get set-up in a half kneeling position with a band anchored above your head to the side of you and the knee that is further away from the band anchor down on the ground. You can place something under your knee for comfort if desired. While holding onto the band with both palms facing down and keeping the rest of your body still, perform a chop motion diagonally downwards away from the anchor only moving your arms. Slowly return to starting position and repeat.
  • FEEL: You should feel the muscles on the outside of your shoulders and shoulder blades working. You should also feel your core muscles and the hip muscles on the side that your knee is down working to help stabilize your body and torso.
  • COMPENSATION: Do not lean forward or backward, do not tilt side to side, do not rotate your body.
