Bring some fun to your workout!

You don’t always have to push heavy weights around or sprint until you pass out.  Sometimes the best workouts involve laughing and challenging yourself to new movements.

Today I bring you Wall Ball!  This is a favorite of mine at our office mostly because somehow I end up gasping for air without realizing how hard I’m working!

The rules are simple, bounce a ball against the wall and use your hand to hit it back.  It’s a great way to work on reaction time, speed, change of direction, adapting, hand eye coordination and acceleration/deceleration.

Today I took on professional golfer Mallory Kent, and we ended up working out butts off!

As you can see, you don’t need anything fancy to add this game into your workout. We’re using a softer ball that can still bounce and it worked great!

Have fun!

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork.
