Boost Metabolism With A Medicine Ball

Are there any metabolism boosters that work? Yes! Exercise is one of the most effective metabolism boosters you can do. You don’t even have to run on a treadmill, climb a stair stepper, or use a jump rope. The only exercise equipment you need is a medicine ball.

The medicine ball is one tool that has been around for quite some time, and has changed over time. It has gone from being a big cumbersome tool, used mainly for strength, to being used for strength, coordination, definition, endurance, and yes, boosting metabolism. The ball has been re-designed so it is easier to grip, and a better tool overall; with the modification of the medicine ball, here are some great medicine ball exercises to help you reach your goals.

Many of the exercises are variations of the squat, and a number of these can also be performed with a sandbag as well. When it comes to the squat you have the basic squat, which can be performed standing against a wall in order to have balance while performing. Some other variations are the overhead squat, the extended squat, and thrusters.

The great thing with these three exercises is that they work your entire body and really help you boost metabolism; with thrusters that is a great way to work your chest, wrist, and triceps, while at the same time working your legs, and giving yourself a great cardio workout. The overhead squat works your entire upper body, and really helps with balance. It is important when doing those two events to have a medicine ball that is a moderate weight not light, but by no means heavy. This is to make sure you have proper form, and to avoid injury.

The frog jump with ball is a great workout for cardio white at the same time working your upper body. Another great medicine ball exercise, the lunge, has many variations, and it has become quite common to use a medicine ball in recent years. It helps to use a ball that will help with balance, and coordination, while at the same time working your upper body. The lunge with a twist in particular is one exercise, where you should use a lighter medicine ball.

The deadlift is a great exercise for the entire body, but as easy as it looks, it helps to have proper form, and do not use a ball that is so heavy, that it impedes on form. You can go heavier, when compared to other exercises, but do bear in mind form above anything else. The Romanian deadlift is another exercise similar to the deadlift, but using lighter weight is more practical in regards to form.

Some exercises such as big circles, wood chopper, halos, good morning, and around the world, are great upper body exercises that are used with a kettlebell, but can also be used with a medicine ball. A light medicine ball is essential not only for form, but also so you can maintain a solid grip. This is very important for good morning, halos, and wood chopper.

The medicine ball is something that should be in every gym, whether professional or home gyms. It is easy, effective and works the whole body while developing balance and coordination. You really cannot go wrong.
