Medicine Ball Exercises

The medicine ball is a great tool as it is relatively inexpensive and can be incorporated into any number of different exercises.  I especially like using the medicine ball for training power through whole body movement.  In the videos below you will see some examples of the medicine ball being used to create rotational power through the whole body as well as overhead power.

The key is selecting a medicine ball weight that challenges you, but isn’t so heavy that it slows you down.  The aim of these exercises is to generate force through a combination of load * speed.
