Let’s begin with some Force and Velocity physics equations. Yay!
Force = Mass x Acceleration
Velocity = Displacement / Time
Power = Force x Velocity
Enter the medicine ball. It’s a great fitness tool that can help you increase your power with a few simple ballistic moves. How? With a partner or against a wall/floor you can pitch, toss, throw or slam the medicine ball. And don’t worry, you can’t hurt it. Just be careful though. The ball will come back to you pretty fast. Core, legs, arms, back, shoulders. . . pretty much your entire body is involved. Which sports benefit by these plyometric exercises? Volleyball, basketball, soccer, baseball, tennis, golf and mixed martial arts are just a few.
Back to the Power equation. To increase your power use a heavier medicine ball and/or throw it faster. Simple as that!
