I love using medicine balls, they are portable, come in a variety of weights, can be inexpensive, can be DIY (created yourself), and can be used to make a movement more advanced. Many people may overlook the usage of a medicine ball and the powers it can unleash when used correctly for your workouts, I think because people assume that lifting weights has to be with a dumbbell, barbell or kettlebell, that medicine balls cannot get the job done, but honestly if you have ever lifted a heavy medicine ball.. you will KNOW it can get the job done! I tell people, don't knock it until you try it.. because you never know, you may end up liking it & this saying goes for don't bash using medicine balls until you have given them a chance, because who knows.. it could be your new go to exercise equipment and in the fitness industry, it is a plus to have variety and know variety; especially as a professional. I don't believe in eliminating options, because what doesn't work for you, could work for a client. I won't be able to talk about all the exercises using a medicine ball can accomplish, but I will name a few and hopefully you will give it a shot.
