Grab a 4 or 6-pound medicine ball and get ready to build strength, stamina, and some serious hand-eye coordination with this move from ACE expert and senior personal training consultant Jonathan Ross.
Lie faceup on the floor with your legs extended and feet together, holding the medicine ball overhead. In one movement, lift your torso and legs, placing the medicine ball just below your knees (on top of your shins) at the top of your lift. As you lower your head and legs back towards the floor, the ball will roll down your legs towards your feet. As you lift back up to your V position, toss the ball back to your arms, catching it and reaching it overhead as you lower back down. Alternate catching the ball with your arms and legs with every V-up. Work your way up to 3 sets of 8-10 reps.
