EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Use a ‘soft’ medicine ball for this, we don’t want it to bounce.
  2. Stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart and deadlift the ball up overhead.
  3. Slam the ball down HARD so it lands between your feet.
  4. Not strictly an abs exercise (because gravity isn’t working against you) but bracing your abs before each slam is a sure-fire way to generate more FORCE as you launch the ball into the ground.

MUSCLES WORKED BY THIS EXERCISE:

  • Shoulders (Front Delts)
  • Abs
  • Legs (Quads)
