Change It Up With These Medicine Ball Workout Videos You Can Do in Any Open Space
We've given you exercise videos with dumbbells and a slew of them with booty bands (hint: you can use these bands for more than just butt exercises!). Now, buckle up for some expert-led videos using a single medicine ball (not to be confused with a stability ball). These workouts — med ball workouts — were actually on Google's Top Trending Workouts of 2019 list. You asked, we listened!
Class FitSugar host Anna Renderer says med balls are easy to incorporate into bodyweight exercises for extra resistance, and they're also effective for practicing your hand-eye coordination. Ahead, check out sweat sessions using a single med ball. The videos range from 10 minutes to 50, so take your pick! You'll have the option of doing full-body routines, some targeting your core and legs, and one where you'll dance it out while holding this weighted ball. Find room, and let's get started!
