Build upper body power with the soccer throw. This medicine ball power exercise is helpful for baseball players, football quarterbacks, tennis players and lacrosse players.
Using medicine balls for plyometric power exercises is ideal. Upper body medicine ball plyometric exercises help to improve power because you can safely train at full speed to retrain the central nervous system to move the body faster.
It doesn't help you to keep getting stronger if your power (how fast your muscles can produce force) doesn't improve...racket sports (like tennis and lacrosse) and throwing sports (like baseball) require you to have superior arm speed.
The soccer throw and the two-handed chest pass are two great medicine ball exercises that improve power if you do the exercises at full speed. When these types of exercises are combined with your strength training program, you will be a powerful athlete!
