With crowded gyms, bodyweight workouts and bodyweight training programs are becoming more popular. But according to Mike Whitfield, a bodyweight expert in the Atlanta, GA area, an inexpensive piece of equipment like the medicine ball can add a whole new dynamic to a bodyweight circuit workout. Mike Whitfield runs BodyweightTorch.com, a website in which anyone can download a 4-week bodyweight training program for free that uses no equipment. Recently, he shared a video with his subscribers showing the Medicine Ball Chop, a unique exercise that works the core as well as improves conditioning.
“The Medicine Ball Chop is a great non-impact exercise that works the core muscles and gets the heart rate up. It’s an awesome way to improve conditioning. It even works the glutes when done correctly. A medicine ball is relatively inexpensive and it’s a great addition to anyone’s bodyweight training program. Doing ten to fifteen reps per side will get the heart pumping rather quickly and improve anyone’s coordination, conditioning and it’s a fun way to burn calories. Workouts don’t have to be boring. By implementing fun and unique exercises like the Medicine Ball Chop, people will be more likely to stick with their workout for long-term success. Consistency is key and when someone is having fun with their workouts, they stay consistent.
The secret key to this unique ab exercise is keeping the abs braced hard during the entire movement. This will work the abs harder and improve core strength. Unique exercises work new muscles, which will help anyone burn more calories. That’s what’s so great about different exercises like this”, said Whitfield.
