Is Splitting Wood Workout?

Is Splitting Wood Workout?

If you split enough wood, you’ll be as strong as the ax you swing. But before you start hacking at the trees behind your home, you should know the proper technique how to it.

It was discovered that tree chopping significantly boosts testosterone.

First, you’ll need a splitting block—usually a large log—to rest under the wood you’re splitting as a safety catch for the ax. Also, choose a heavier ax that provides an even bigger head (and a better workout).

To begin, stand with your legs wider than shoulder-width apart. With one hand at the bottom of the handle and one at the top, lift the ax straight above your head; slide the top hand down as you swing, and hit the wood on its front edge. Repeat.

Although your biceps, shoulders will burn, you’ll feel like a man.
