Project Description


Medicine ball training is appropriate to all levels of ability, age, development and sport. To be most effective the program should contain exercises that match the pattern of movements of the sport.

Balls have easy-to-grip rubbery surface and will bounce. Balls can be used with trampoline rebounder or thrown back and forth with a partner.

To ensure personal safety and good technique while doing medicine ball exercises the following points should be remembered (Jones 1997)

Complete throws with full extension of the arms
On standing exercises plant feet before beginning to throw the ball
Always use the full joint range in the correct sequence in carrying out each exercise
Maintain technique – do not sacrifice control for distance
Inexperienced athletes should not take the ball too far back behind the head when carrying out overhead throws
When picking up a ball, ensure the knees are bent and the back is kept straight
When carrying out exercises lying on your back, ensure the lower back always remains in contact with the surface
Prior to a catch, ensure you:
keep arms extended
keep hands together
keep eyes on the ball
reach out to meet the ball prior to making contact
do not attempt to catch balls thrown wildly
