MEDICINE BALL INNOVATION SERIES
After working with the Kettlebell, we worked through a few medicine ball exercises. While kettlebell work is done with more fluidity, working with the medicine ball allows for more explosive and eccentric training.
MEDBALL PARTNER TOSS
As with many of these exercises, you'll notice that I have Marcus perform an exercise while keeping his head and eyes forward and then change to keeping his eye on the medball or kettlebell as it rotates around his body. Incorporating a vestibular component to these exercises adds another dimension to the training.
MEDBALL ROTATIONAL WALL TOSS
These are perfect for athletes that compete in any type of rotational sport like baseball or golf. The ability to train the neck and core from different angles while developing core rotational power and speed benefits athletes across all sports.
MEDBALL WALL CHEST TOSS
The anterior muscles of the neck are the weakest (which is why you see so many injuries from the backs of heads hitting the ground). Strengthening these muscles at varying angles as you shuffle side to side while performing an upper body throw, integrates a host of functional elements into a single exercise.
