Exicon

Trying to make sense of the exercises you may hear called at an F3 bootcamp? Need something new for your first or 100th Q? You’ve found the place. (You also may want to consult The Lexicon, at least after your first workout, to make sense of what just happened.)

Wood Chopper

Grab a sandbag (preferably, for the instability) or a paver. Start in a crouch, twisted to the left, sandbag outside your left shin (1). Swing the sandbag up across the body to the right to a standing press position with weight outside your right shoulder (2). Swing back down to the left to the starting position (3). Back up (4). You should swing vigorously enough to be forced to decelerate the weight at both top and bottom - really swing it, as if you were chopping wood. / 20 count in cadence. Switch sides to start on the right. Repeato. / Intersperse with another exercise for recovery, and complete 3 sets for a true #CrowdPleaser. Misery and soreness from hips to armpits sure to result. / Disclaimer: Maintain good form - straight backs! Bad backs or unfit FNGs should modify to jumpies with the weight.
