March Madness Medicine Ball Workout

Posted Mar 17 2010 6:34pm
Its March Madness time again! As you watch the NCAA basketball tournament, get in a workout or two during the first 4-day basketball weekend fest. I have the perfect workouts for you!

Use medicine ball workouts to exercise in the transverse plane of motion. This plane is not worked nearly enough by many people. Your body goes through many transverse motions during the day when you twist, turn and rotate your body (like basketball players).

Your training needs to reflect how you live day to day. Its not that difficult to adjust your workout routine. Here are some good medicine ball transverse plane exercises:

1. walking lunges with medicine ball twist (pictured above)
2. standing, kneeling or sitting medicine ball rotations
3. diagonal medicine ball chops (with back foot rotation)
4. medicine ball side toss (rotate your hips when throwing)

Training in the transverse plane of motion will also add intensity and fat burning to your workouts (especially if its new to you)!
