Vertimax Med Ball Jumps

  • Assume athletic stance, feet at hip width, with Vertimax resistance attached to waist; hold 10- to16-pound med ball at chest
  • Keeping chest up and knees behind toes, lower into quarter-squat position
  • Explode upward for maximum height and drive med ball overhead
  • Land softly with bent knees and immediately perform next rep

Sets/Reps/Recovery: 3-4x8-10 with 45 seconds rest
Gaines: This is a great explosive exercise that works Chris’ core strength, balance and overall athletic ability by forcing him to explode up while controlling the med ball.
