Workout Wednesday - Medicine Balls
This medicine ball workout mixes cardio and resistance moves to help you build strength and blast fat.
The medicine ball has come a long way from the old leather ones . They now come in a vast array of colors and are made with rubber surfaces making them easier to grip. They also come in weights ranging from one to fifty pounds so you can vary resistance to suit your needs. Because they bounce and can be tossed around, they are great for working you with random movements instead of the fixed ones that come with barbell, dumbbell and machine workouts. There is virtually no other equipment in the gym or at home that can provide the versatility of the medicine ball.
You can add variety to your routine because of the limitless kinds of exercises you can do with them. You can toss them, bounce them, roll them, and do many traditional free weight exercises with them. With all the variety they provide, it is hard to get bored with their use and people of all fitness levels from beginner to athlete can use them.
All while sculpting a tighter torso and flatter abs, weighted ball is a great training tool because you can add it to almost any exercise to challenge your core stability and improve coordination.
