The medicine ball bunny hop exercise will help you improve your speed and power. Explosive power is very important in sports because you rarely reach maximum speed during a game.
Use your strength to improve your power (how fast your muscles produce force). You can improve your power by doing exercises at full speed. This will retrain your muscles to fire explosively.
1. Stand and hold a medicine ball chest high with your feet about shoulder width apart. Squat down and prepare to bunny hop.
2. When you do the bunny hop, be sure to generate power with your legs and transfer that power through your core as you simultaneously explode (jump) forward and upward. Keep the ball chest high at all times.
3. Repeat 6-8 bunny hops in succession with maximum effort. Rest 3 minutes and repeat.
Add the medicine ball bunny hop to your sports fitness workouts!
