Medicine Ball Front Chop

The medicine ball front chop is a great full body core exercise that also works your lower body. Do this exercise at a moderate pace before progressing to full speed.

Building athletic core strength is important for athletes to avoid injury and increase power output. Do as many core exercises on your feet as you can to build an athletic core.

1. Start with your arms extended with the medicine ball overhead. Your feet should be slightly wider than shoulder width with your feet pointed slightly outward.

2. Squat down while moving the ball to the ground between your legs. Look straight ahead and brace your torso (as if taking a punch to the gut).

3. Extend your hips, contract your glutes and rise back up to the starting position. Repeat.
