Improve Arm And Core Power With Medicine Ball Blasts

If you want to build power in your arms and core (abs in particular), try the Lying Medicine Ball Blast. Remember, rate-of-force production (how fast your muscles can produce force) is one of the top physical predictors of athletic success (the other is dynamic balance). It doesn't do any good to continually get stronger without an increase in power.

The Lying Medicine Ball Blast is a plyometric exercise that will force you to contract your arms and core forcefully in order to execute the movement.

To make the move tougher, do a situp on a decline bench while you toss the ball up. Choose a medicine ball that you can only toss 2-3 feet above your outstretched arms. Also, perform this movement at full speed for the required repetitions to get optimum benefits.

Train hard and smart!

Other things being equal, a muscular, powerful athlete will outperform a fat, slower or skinny, weaker athlete. Sports Fitness Hut's Fat Blaster Athletic Power Training System will give you your "lean and mean" athletic machine!
