Ball-Slams

Move Targets: Upper Back


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Step into a squat stance with your under the shoulders (or slightly wider) and toes turned out about an inch. Drop the hips back and down into a squat and reach for the slam ball, trying to keep your chest lifted as much as possible. Do not round the back.

Step 2: Exhale and push out of the squat as you lift the ball overhead. Gain some momentum for your slam by dropping the ball behind the head like a triceps extension.

Step 3: Use the back muscles to launch the ball into the ground. At the same time, drop into your squat. Catch the ball as it bounces up and repeat. That is one rep.
