While we may not have a pair dangling from our crotches, every girl should have a set of balls to play with. I'm talking about medicine balls (get your mind out of the gutter!) because they are an absolutely fantastic exercise tool to incorporate into your workout. In lieu of our INCREDIBLE 40% off wall and slam balls sale, I want to share an awesome medicine ball workout. Since our last blog post featured a Men’s Health’s article, I figured its time to focus on the ladies ;) But guys you are of course encouraged to try out these exercises as well! Check out the Women’s Health video below to get some fat blasting and power sculpting medicine ball workout.

Medicine Ball Slam:

1)      Stand with your feet a little outside your hips

2)      Bring the ball high above your head, with your elbows slightly bent

3)      Throw the ball down to the floor as hard as you can

4)      Catch the ball and bring it back to above your head

        Hint* keep your abs and back engaged as you bring yourself back to the starting position

5) Repeat!

This is a great exercise if you want to release some tension!
