Core & Glutes: Traditional Kneeling Chop

Tall kneeling work is a great way to take the feet and ankles out of the equation and put an emphasis on the “center” of your body or your “core” which is 360 degrees all around. When the word "core" is used, people immediately think of planks and abs but it really includes your diaphragm, pelvic floor and all of the hip muscles as well.This is a traditional kneeling chop but we added a band around @ironptmom ‘s ankles to get a bit more glute activation. You may also add a block between the feet to squeeze to get more of the external rotation component. Credit to our colleague @drzachbrantner for the innovation to our traditional chop.
