Let’s keep it simple today……
Med ball slams are an awesome way to work on generating power and sequencing the body. I use them all the time in all planes, positions, for cardio, power, and to create extreme awesomeness.
They are performed wrong all the time though and it makes me want to scream! Why are you bending so far over and placing so much leverage on your low back for this exercise? Why are you putting your head at risk when the med ball bounces back up and almost hits you?
Sometimes exercises are better watched than explained, check it out!
The key to slamming a med ball: maintain posture at all times! That’s it, simple as that. Incorporating them into your workout routine will kick it up a notch, but only if you keep your form in check.
Add a few sets of 10 slams into your next workout and see how you feel!
