In a workout rut? Give the medicine ball a try!
High intensity interval training always guarantees three things: fat blasting, muscle toning and saved time. Theses are the only three things you’ll ever really need from a routine. Add in medicine balls, which are typically lightweight and structured for an easy grip and maneuverability, and you’ll hit angles you wouldn’t normally think of hitting with weights. Since so much can be accomplished with medicine balls, its only right we do a full-body H.I.I.T. routine to tone and slim your whole body.
Many medicine ball workouts also indirectly work your core and shoulders, so if you start feeling a burn even though you’re not concentrating on these body parts, your body will thank you. Your core is central to everything you do on your feet, so sneaking it in is always great. High reps and light weight will get your body the results you want fast.
Equipment Needed: Interval Timer (Gymboss is a free app download), dual grip medicine ball(8-12 lbs), water for hydration, towel, mat or soft surface
