Benefits

Woodchop Kettlebell Lunges Benefits

The cable woodchop targets the transverse abdominis muscle and the oblique muscles. These are the muscles that allow you to twist at the waist and to swing a bat or racket using the weight of your body and not just your arms. The woodchop also engages the muscles of your back, shoulders, and legs.
