I love using them when I can, and it’s definitely a great full body workout when you don’t have a chance to get to the gym.

Today’s workout was inspired by fit sugar.

Here is a summary of the exercises I did. I personally used a 10 pound ball and did 4 sets of 10 reps each.

  • Crunch and Toss
  • Medicine Ball Push-up
  • Medicine Ball Bridge
  • Split Lunge and Medicine Ball Slam
  • Medicine Ball Rotational Slam

There are so many other medicine balls exercises, the list goes on. Here are a few other example of some I incorporate into my current training routine for a little variety.

  • Lunge with Rotation
  • Crunches with Touch Toes
  • Diagonal Chops
  • Slams
  • Adductor Squeeze
  • Seated Rotations
  • Squat Throws,  and many more!!

So, if you are looking to add variety to your workouts, Google, YouTube, and do what you have to do to get your medicine workout in. Try it and let me know what you think by leaving a comment!
