How to

1. Sit on a bench with your legs stretched out in front of you, ankles crossed, slightly below parallel and your arms holding your medicine ball. Your torso should be leaning backwards around a 45-degree angle from the bench. This will be your starting position.


2. Keeping your core engaged, take the medicine ball and slam it down onto the floor to one side, catching it on the full.


3. Twist your upper body slightly to take the medicine ball to your other side, repeating this slamming motion with force.


4. Repeat by taking the ball from one side to the other.
