Medicine balls are weighted balls designed to be bounced, tossed and thrown with your exercises. They are available at sports stores, retail stores and online. The trick is to find one that is challenging enough but not so hard that you risk injuring yourself. In this video Chris is using a 6-pound medicine ball. You can certainly go heavier or use a different ball that might be available! Got a basketball or volleyball in the garage? Try it! Or just use a dumbbell, but make sure you avoid the tossing and rolling part! If you love this workout, check out our 10-minute Kettlebell Routine.
