Fitness Friday: Medicine Ball Workout

Cold weather makes me want to hibernate and because of this I am still avoiding most gyms in Nashville. This means I have to get creative with my indoor workouts. A weighted medicine ball has been one of my best purchases  for at home training. In some workouts, it’s the only weight I use. Check out one of my medicine ball workouts below. I use a 12 lb ball, but whatever weight you are comfortable with will work. Also, this workout will be in a pyramid, so start with 30 reps of each, and work down 20, 15, 10, 5….done!
Remember to start with a 5 minute cardio workout to warm up your muscles. Jump rope, jumping jacks, etc.
ROUND 1:
30 reps of each, rest 60 secs in between each exercise and 2 minutes in between each round.
– Walking Lunges

Get into Push up position, placing one hand on the medicine ball, lower down, push back up and slide ball to other hand. Repeat.
