Exercises with Medicine Ball
A medicine ball (also known as an exercise ball, med ball, or fitness ball) is a weighted ball roughly the diameter of the shoulders (approx. 14 inches). Medicine balls come in a variety of weights from 2lbs. to 30lbs. and can be made of hard plastic, dense rubber or synthetic leather material.
The medicine ball is one of the oldest strength and conditioning tools and is used in a variety of exercises to improve explosive power and increase strength. The medicine ball is also used quite extensively for core conditioning.
The abdominal crunch-up with the medicine ball is an intermediate core exercise that really hits the midsection hard. You must have good lower back strength in order to perform this exercise properly.
