High Low Chops With Bands
Area Targeted: Side and Middle Abs
High Low Chops With Tube Bands is an amazing exercise for working the Rectus Abdominus (8 Pack) and Your Transverse Abdominus (Side Abs). Not only will you feel your Abs working with every rep, but you will feel more mobility with increased your range of motion in your core.
Anchor: Secure the band(s) to the door with the door anchor at the top of the door.
Bands: Attach both ends of the band(s) to one handle, and grip the handle with both hands.
Body Positioning: Stand about 2 feet away from the door. Turn your body so that your side is facing the door. Keep your chest up, head straight and arms almost straight (elbows slightly bent). Get into the starting position by rotating towards the door so that your arms are pointed up towards the door anchor.
Pull your hands down and across your body until they are by your outer leg, right above your knee. Return to the starting position (controlling the resistance). Repeat.
POINTS TO REMEMBER
1. Maintain only a slight bend in your arms (they should almost be straight).
