Create a Tough, Versatile Workout with Medicine Balls

While medicine balls appear to be limited in many people's eyes, they are in fact a very useful fitness tool. You will notice during the medicine ball workout videos that med balls are capable of producing strength, power and speed movements to help improve the fitness of people with diverse fitness goals. In addition to the classic throwing exercises and exercises you have seen boxers training with, the medicine ball can be used simply as a weight.

In addition to explosive throwing exercises, medicine balls can be used as an unstable surface for many different kinds of push-ups. If the medicine is heavy enough for the user, they can also be used in place of a barbell or dumbbells. Overall, medicine balls are a versatile tool for trainers and for those who know exercises with them or have an imagination.

When & Why Perform the Med Ball Exercises

Medicine ball exercises can be performed at any point of a workout although they are usually used at the beginning. The round surface of medicine balls is optimal for exercises in which the weight is best held close to the body as it can be held comfortably against the skin. The round shape and evenly distributed weight of medicine balls is perfect for exercises in which the resistance travels through awkward ranges of motion such as wood chops.

Safety Precautions with Medicine Balls

Using medicine balls is not as risky as using some other piece of fitness equipment, however, you need to know your limits and be able to judge space correctly. Since medicine balls are often used for throwing exercises, be sure there is no windows which are at risk of getting shattered by a medicine ball.

Likewise, if there is anything that could be damaged by a 5-30 pound ball getting hurled through the air, make sure it is not in the way when you do medicine ball exercises. This goes for people as well. During partner throwing exercises make sure both people are familiar with the weight of the ball and the speed at which it will be thrown. It goes without saying that if a flying 30lb medicine ball hits you squarely in the nose, it is going to cause serious problems.
