Medicine ball training

The medicine ball is an ancient training tool that can be used for strength and rehabilitation exercises.

This dynamic and fast paced method of training means that medicine ball exercises are particularly effective for building strength, explosive power and coordination through plyometric weight training drills.

Medicine balls are also a popular method of training in pairs for coordinated ball drills.


Always consult your GP before undertaking any form of weight loss, fitness or exercise.
