Here are the benefits of exercising with your 8Kg Medicine Ball
Add variety to your workouts by including one today. It is one of the simplest ways to tone up your core muscles which leads to improved balance, strength, explosive power, endurance and coordination. After a while of exercising with this you will develop explosive power in your body.
A medicine ball is a weighted ball which can weigh between one and twelve kilograms (you may be able to find lighter or even heavier ones). At 8Kg it is an ideal weight. They are different to other types or slam balls. They are not large ones that you can sit on or throw against the wall. They are smaller and you can hold them in your hands.
The weight of this will challenge your muscles like dumbbells and weights will. Also it will provide you with a great deal of versatility and good range of motion. It is fine for you to throw it into the air. You wouldn’t want to do that with kettlebells or dumbbells would you?
Develop Explosive Strength
If you play sports then you will know how important explosive power is. When you train regularly with a medicine ball you can develop more explosive strength. You can throw it and do other things such as leaping from the ground, kicking, jumping and sprinting.
A great way to build explosive strength is to add your medicine ball to your squat jumps. Just hold your it in both hands and see how much more challenging the squats become! You can also hold it when you are performing dynamic scissor lunges to improve your explosive power.
Develop your Core Strength
If you want to strengthen your core then this is a great way to do it. For example you can hold your medicine ball when you perform crunches. Add more resistance to your oblique exercises such as Russian twists.
Another way to improve core strength and your legs is to hold it when performing lunges and squats. When you are coming up from a lunge or a squat you can lift it over your head.
When you use fitness machines or dumbbells for dynamic movement you will not have the same range of motion that you will get using a medicine ball. It will be easy for you to substitute one for kettlebells or dumbbells in a lot of different exercises.
Improve your Balance
You can improve your balance by using your medicine ball. A good example is to use it with your push up workout. As you lower your body to the floor you can place your hand on it. You can also roll it from side to side as you alternate push ups.
Simply throwing it up in the air and catching it will assist with the improvement of your hand to eye coordination. You can throw it back and forth to a partner as well.
There are a lot of advantages to training with a medicine ball. Get your dual handle medicine ball today and take your workouts to the next level and have a lot of fun while you are doing this.
