Full Body Medicine Ball Circuit

How to perform the Full Body Medicine Ball Circuit:

This workout is very simple to set up (all you need is one moderate-weight medicine ball that does not bounce - like one that is filled with sand) and can be done in any timeframe that you have (anywhere from 15-30 minutes), but should be done at a fast-pace and with minimal rest. You can even fit this workout in at the end of a workout for an extra calorie burn! Complete all exercises in a row for 1 round, rest for 1 minute, then begin with the first exercise for round 2. Complete as many rounds as you can in the time you have! (Try for 4-6 rounds!)

As always, be sure to warm up before beginning the first round and cool down and stretch when you are finished.

Round 1:

  • 10 Med Ball Push-ups with right hand on ball
  • 10 Med Ball Push-ups with left hand on ball
  • 20 Med Ball Squat and overhead shoulder press
  • 20 Med Ball Squat and ball slam
  • 20 Med Ball Squat thrust and stand
  • 40 Med Ball Russian twist (20 each side)

Check out this short video to see how each exercise is performed and to ensure that you have proper form throughout each exercise!
