Pull To Push Chop

The wood chop exercise has many varieties and in the video below we see osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Osteopathy perform a rope pull to push chop to different destination points.

When it comes to performing this exercise there are many opportunities to perform this in different ways to create a range of reactions and training focuses.  Some of these variations include:

  • Height of pull to push
  • Cable attachment
  • Degree of pull to push
  • Destination/Angle of pull to push
  • Distance of the pull to push motion
  • Body start, movement and end position

Generally there is no right or wrong way to perform these, rather the question should be asked, why is it being performed that way and what is the benefit.

Incorporating a chop movement into your training program can be a great idea because it integrates full body movement and require the head, shoulder girdle, trunk, hips and lower body to be involved.

Next time you are revising your training program, be sure to try out some pull to push or push to pull chop movements.
