I've written before about how much I hate crunches. Anyone with me? If you are, you also probably love any ab exercise that you can do standing up. And this is my current favorite! I love that you really have to concentrate on letting your abs do the work too. Anything that helps me practice that mind-body connection thing is an exercise I can get behind.
Anyway, here's a link to a video on the Woodchop exercise. We are working on filming some of our own exercise videos to share with you here, but in the meantime we've curated some from YouTube that we think are solid. I hope you'll try it and share your favorite non-crunch ab exercises below!
