If you want to get in shape, you need balls! There are bouncy balls, soft balls, big balls, small balls, and balls that splat. The ones filled with sand are my go-to for most of my work. Balls that bounce have a place, but not for what I want to accomplish.

Medicine Ball Exercises to Improve GPP

Med Ball Carries While Sled Dragging
Carries while pulling a sled can hurt you. Try pairing them together after you are in good shape by pulling a sled and carries independently. Belt dragging will give you a forward lean, and having a heavy med ball at the abdomen level will produce more of a backward lean. Together, they put you somewhere in the middle, making it slightly different. I prefer to lighten the sled for this exercise and keep the distance in the 30- to 40-yard range. Take a wider-than-shoulder-width walking stance and pull with your heels. Keep the feet wide. And waddle like a pregnant lady. Keep the ball right at your belly button and keep on stepping. If you are feeling frisky, keep going for a ½ mile. Med Ball Carries While Sled Dragging is perfect for an off day after a lower-body workout.

Clint Darden Strongman Slam (Warm-up)
This will be very similar to a regular slam, with a slight change in its performance. You want to open everything up before the slam. I took the med ball behind the head, stood up tall before pulling it back over, and slammed it. The focus is more on standing tall and stretching than the slam itself. This is strictly for warming up. A few sets to get you moving is all you need.

Backward Throw Overhead
Here is another distance movement. Backward Throw Overheads can be done back and forth or over a longer distance if space allows. Be explosive and maximize your distance before jogging to the next position. It's similar to the basket toss for height, except now we are looking for a horizontal movement. This is also another simple movement that even young kids will enjoy. Give your young ones a ball, and they can do their work.

Chest Pass for Distance
This is a variation of the walk and toss. You want to sit down on each toss before getting up and chasing after the ball. If you are limited in space or can’t walk on a busy road, these present a slightly different challenge. Increase the difficulty by adding a weighted belt or weight vest.
