Monday Rehab: Med Balls Slams, do this….not that!

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!

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.
