Medicine ball chop and lift

STRENGTH

Preparation:

  1. Begin with a thorough warm up before starting this exercise. This engages the sensory system.
  2. Start with the feet slightly wider than the width of the shoulders with the toes slightly turned out.

 

How to Do:

  1. This movement involves a cross-body chop motion using a medicine ball.
  2. Start with the knees slightly bent, both hands on the medicine ball, and arms straight.
  3. The hands start at head height (as shown).
  4. In one quick and smooth motion, move the medicine ball down and across the body.
  5. At this point you will return the medicine ball straight up and perform the movement in the opposite direction from high to low again.
  6. Repeat the pattern back and forth for the desired reps.
