Medicine ball training develops high threshold motor units, which are muscle fibers that contribute to one's explosiveness. This workout is a great example of plyometric training, a type of movement that develops your muscles' explosiveness through quick and consistent contractions.
The goals for this workout are to:
- Build Total Body Power
- Develop Movement Coordination
- Improve Explosiveness
- Increase Strength and Elasticity of Muscle Tissues
You will increase the strength and elasticity of your muscle tissues. This lends itself to enhanced performance via faster and more forceful muscular contraction. Although medicine ball training can be done solo, the ideal medicine ball workout involves a partner.
This workout covers all major muscle areas, upper body strength, legs, back, and core. So what are you waiting for? Ditch those free weights, get a coach, and get going!
