The kneeling stability chop increases power while strengthening the obliques. The kneeling position is a slight variation of the standing and half-kneeling stability chop exercises.

    Brace your core, squeeze your glutes, and use your torso to pull the rope down and across your body, past your opposite hip. Return to the starting position and repeat before switching to the other side.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Maintain a slight bend in the elbows.
  • Keep your back erect throughout the entire exercise.
