The Benefits of Soft Toss Medicine Balls – Mike Boyle

 

Ask the Expert: Vern Gambetta


 

Vern Gambetta"Medicine ball work is an integral part of my athlete development system. Over the years I have found it to be a very useful tool to develop postural strength, improve range of motion and enhance coordination. Medicine ball training is highly adaptable, versatile and portable which affords a wide range of options for use. I incorporate some type of medicine ball work daily in training. Every warm-up incorporates some type of medicine ball core module to get everything connected and synced up. The different types of medicine balls have various uses depending on the athlete and the type of workout. Take your training to another level by incorporating medicine ball work."
