How to Do Jumping Lunges With Medicine Ball

The jumping lunges with a medicine ball should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the jumping lunges with a medicine ball.
