To perform band woodchops, take two bands and loop them together to make one long band. Tie it and choke it off to a vertical pole or a horizontal portion of a machine. Preferably choke the band off at above head level so that the band is hanging a foot off the floor. Take the band with your right hand and hold it out straight overhead. Take your opposite hand and hold onto the other hand to brace it. Step away from the anchor point of the band until the band is taught with tension. Forcefully contract your abs and turn sideways at the same time making a diagonal with the arc of your hands. This exercise is great for building the musculature or the core and building a strong base to squat from.
