The last few weeks I have shared medicine balls exercises I love for female athletes and how we use them this summer to train for power
I always get asked “What size medicine ball should I use?”
I like having my athletes use no more than 10 pounds when doing regular medicine ball movements, but when we start throwing and catching, I like using 5 to 8 pound med balls
Remember, we want to move and throw the med ball as fast as we can, so we want a ball these athletes can throw
Enjoy the 1 minute video I put together talking about what size med ball to choose and showing you 3 more exercises you can add into your training program
1. MB Overhead Throws
2. Standing Chest Press
3. Kneeling Chest Pass
Have a great weekend
PS: Whenever you are ready, here are 3 ways you can improve this post, summer basketball season
