Simplify Your Workout: Medicine Ball

Simplify Your Workout: Medicine Ball

Getting a full-body workout is not an easy process. Trying to decide which machine is best while determining the right amount of reps, weight, and proper posture, can be overwhelming. And while we’re at home, there’s not many options for equipment to use. But if you’ve got a medicine ball, we’ve got the perfect workout for you (and if you don’t you can substitute a medicine ball with another ball!). Watch Bay Club FiDi Club Manager, Kristina Alai, as she takes you through these four simple exercises that will work your whole body.

Squat and Throw | 10 Reps x 3 Sets 
Bend down doing a deep squat holding the ball at eye level, as you rise up throw the ball against a wall catching it as you squat down again.

Modified Burpee | 10 Reps x 3 Sets 
Drop down using the ball as support between you and the ground. Pop your feet out, then in again as you jump up raise the ball above your head.

Medicine Ball Slam | 10 Reps x 3 Sets 
Hold the ball at eye level, squat down as you slam the ball on the floor. Rise up as you lift the ball back to eye level.

Modified Push-up | 10 Reps x 3 Sets 
Use the medicine ball as a balance point for your feet and do a push-up. If you want to add more of a challenge, alternate rising a single leg as you push up.
