Improve Your Sports Power With Medicine Ball Workouts

Posted Jan 07 2009 2:58pm
Explosive power is many times more important than running speed. The ability to "get there quicker" helps you "make the play" or "beat your opponent to the spot."

Medicine ball workouts are great for increasing your power (especially full speed workouts).....with medicine balls it is easier to work your body in all 3 planes of motion.

It doesn't help you to continually get stronger if power development is not there also. Power, or speed strength (how fast your muscles can produce force) is one of the best physical predictors of success in sports. Plyometric medicine ball exercises help you to increase power. Traditional barbell and dumbbell strength exercises don't allow you to move at the speeds necessary to improve power.
