Resistance Training – Medicine Ball Workouts

Medicine Ball Workouts

Hi There!

In our last blog, we did some basic yoga workouts. This time let’s work with our medicine balls again.

Remember that your form is more important than trying to work out with a heavier ball.

Squat Thrust – Stand upright with your feet hip-distance apart and a medicine ball in both
hands in front of you.

Drop down and push the ball into the ground as you kick both legs out behind you.

Quickly pull your feet back to the ball, landing in a squat position. As you stand back up, shove your hips forward and bring the ball back to the starting position. That’s one repetition.

Do as many reps as you can in 45 seconds, then take a 15-second rest.

Deadlift – Stand with your feet hip-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Hold a medicine ball in front of you in both hands with your arms straight down in front of you so the ball is
around thigh-level.

Squeeze your abs to brace your core. Without moving your knees, bend at the hips and lower your torso until it’s parallel with the floor. Hold for a second, then squeeze your butt and return to starting position (still with knees bent).

That’s one repetition. Do as many reps as you can in 45 seconds, then take a 15-second rest.

High Knee – Stand upright with a medicine ball in both your hands at chest height. Squeeze your abs and keep your back straight. Hop one knee upwards until it touches the ball,
then return and hop with the other knee.

That is one repetition. Do as many reps as you can in 45 seconds, then take a 15-second rest.
