Swiss & Medicine Ball Exercise
The ability to generate strength and power is a very important component for success in many sports, particularly in those involving explosive movements. Medicine ball training, in conjunction with a program of weight training and circuit training, can be used to develop strength and power. Certain medicine ball exercises can also be used as part of a polyometric training program to develop explosive movements.
Medicine ball training is appropriate to all levels of ability, age, development and sport. To be most effective the program should contain exercises that match the pattern of movements of the sport.
The swiss ball (sometimes also called fit ball or physio ball) is an excellent piece of exercise equipment which can be used by individuals at all levels of fitness, to work every major muscle group in the body. It also adds the dimension of core strength to your training.
