NMFIT Fat Frying Medicine Ball Workout

Medicine Ball run!

Boredom is one of the number one reasons someone might give up on their workout routine! So as a way to keep things interesting I like to take my fitness routine outside and grab a couple of my fitness accessories to create a nice and challenging workout.  I recently purchased a medicine ball, below are a few moves that I put together with my medicine ball at my side!

Warm Up:

  • 1 min jumping jacks
  • 30 second high knees
  • 30 second jumping jacks
  • 1 minute squats

Medicine Ball Run: Select a weighted medicine ball that is challenging, while holding the ball run back and forth across a set distance in your local park, football field or even in your backyard. Run as far as you can (set a goal) and run back, this will complete one set.  The workout is very similar to suicides while holding a medicine ball.  I did this for 5 sets.

Medicine Ball Toss: Either while seated on a bench (more challenging) or seated on the grass elevate you legs at a 90 degree angle.  With a partner toss a medicine ball back and forth while maintaining proper form and balance.  Make sure to keep your core engaged and legs elevated! I performed this move for one minute (3 sets) with a 30 second break in between. 

I finished up with my favorite cardio burst of jumping rope!
