How about this for a starter?

Yeah, that's alright. You wouldn't believe how much energy this takes. Just try it for fun's sake. But mind your swing.

Unlike in golfing the swing comes directly over your head and cuts the piece of wood in two parts. Keep yor legs apart from each other and concentrate on your two-handed swing.

Use enough force so you won't need another strike. If the wood is already dry and hard you may experince some difficulty, but just keep on chopping.

It is said that our cross country skiing champ Juha Mieto only used to chop wood in order to keep himself fit. ; )

yeah, sure

but it is healthy.
