Can y’all believe that it’s almost Halloween? That means October is almost over. And that means that the holiday season is among us! I’m so ready to have all my family together at Thanksgiving and then it’s Christmas. The BEST time of year by far. Okay so I’ve skipped ahead a bit. Back to it almost being Halloween. I’ve created a new workout for y’all to try using a medicine ball! And since it’s almost Halloween, I had to give it a spooky theme. Monsters! Mostly because Monster and Medicine Ball both start with an M. And by mostly I mean that’s all. Let’s just get to the workout…
**Note: Don’t have a medicine ball? You can just use one weight! Try 8-12 lbs!
Push Out Jacks: Jumping jacks holding the ball at chest level. As you jump out, press the ball out straight in front of you.
Jump Squats: Squat and jump using your calves to press off your toes as high as you can. Press the ball overhead as you jump up.
Sit Ups: Hold the ball while performing. You can make it harder by adding a Russian twist (twist side to side) at the top of each sit up.
Lunges: Step forward alternating right then left until you get to 30!
Push Ups: One hand on the ball and one hand on the ground, perform 10 on each side. Start with your knees on the ground and as you get better, work up to push ups using the proper form on your toes!
And there you have it! Simple exercises with a little something special to make it more challenging. Give it a go and let me know what you think!
Happy hump day y’all!
