The STACK Exercise of the Week will help you improve your overall sports performance—including strength, speed, conditioning and flexibility. This week, we highlight the Med Ball Clean and Press, an exercise that improves lower-body power.
The Med Ball Clean and Press is a variation of the Power Clean and Press that involves a dynamic med ball toss. This more closely mimics an athletic movement and is easier on the body than the Power Clean Press, while still developing lower-body triple extension and upper-body pressing power. Also great about this exercise: it forces your muscles to store energy after performing the Clean segment, which you then unload to press the ball overhead. This action is similar to a jump or, in Votto’s case, a swing of the bat.
