Good for: Core and arms, and for feeding the fire.

1) Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent. Hold a ViPr (you can also substitute a dumbbell) with two hands and lift it up over your left shoulder. 

2) Swing the ViPr across your body and down, ending with the ViPr on the outside of your right knee. Swing the ViPr back up, this time over your left shoulder. This equals one rep.

The workout: Start with two sets of 15 reps, alternating sides, and work your way up to three sets. Or just do this for as long as it takes to stock up your woodpile.
