How to Do Rotational Resistance Band Woodchop Pivot

Each rotational resistance band woodchop pivot should begin with a good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop this rotational resistance band woodchop pivot.


Beginning Rotational Resistance Band Woodchop

1. Begin by placing your feet shoulder-width apart and parallel to one another. Hold a dumbbell in both hands, either at the ends or with your hands clasped at the handle.

2. Hold the dumbbell against your right hip. This causes your body to rotate to the right. To avoid straining your back, pivot your feet to the right.


Rotational Resistance Band Woodchop Movement

1. To start this movement, you need to have your knees slightly bent and hips twisted towards the tubing at the 8 o'clock mark.

2. You will be grabbing the tubing with both hands so that it is across your body.

3. Grabbing the tubing, pull away, untwisting your body, and simultaneously come up from the squat position until you are facing away from the tubing in a diagonal straight line.

4. Stop at the 2 o'clock mark and to finish the motion, come back from the top and reverse the motion to return to the position you started the exercise in. This completes one repetition.

5. To work the opposite side, you will be facing the opposite way in the beginning, and twisting the opposite way.


Rotational Resistance Band Woodchop Benefits

The main muscles involved are your upper gluteal muscles (glute medius and minimus). Muscles in the thighs and calves. Your thighs primarily stabilize your body, while your calf muscles on the opposite side of the movement provide power.
