Vertimax Med Ball Step-Up

  • Assume athletic stance with Vertimax resistance attached to waist; hold med ball in front of chest
  • Step onto box and drive up until leg is fully extended
  • Drive opposite knee high and press med ball forward at top of movement
  • Step down with control to start position and perform rep with opposite leg
  • Continue alternating for specified reps

Sets/Reps/Recovery: 3-4x4-5 each leg with 30-45 seconds rest
Gaines: This is another great explosive exercise that improves core strength and balance while reinforcing running mechanics with the toe-up, knee drive.
