10/19/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 20. October 2013 10:53



The other day my husband and I were working out (many people find it easier to be consistent with workout if you exercise with a buddy), and we did a simply designed, but highly effective exercise.

I call the exercise back-to-back medicine ball rotation.  Simply stated, you sit back touching back with your partner, while sitting on the floor.  One person starts by holding a weighted medicine ball, passing it to your partner on your left, their right.  Then, you rotate 180 degrees and grab the ball back from them. 

You must keep your core tight and your backs touching.

I felt this exercise in my internal and external oblique’s the next day.  Proof to me that I worked a muscle in a new way.  Try it!
