Most of us don’t make the most of our workout time, whether we like to admit it to ourselves or not. Maybe we don’t go in with a clear plan, maybe the gym is too crowded, maybe someone else is using the equipment we need… plenty of factors can impact the quality of our sessions.
But the way I figure it, I’m going to take the time to work out, I’m going to make sure that I make the most of that time. And one way to do that is to be as calculated as possible with the workout I’m planning. This means not having to run from one side of a gym to the other and not having to fight people for equipment. In fact, when I’m particularly pressed for time (or I know that I’m heading to the gym in peak hour) I’ll often plan a workout that uses just bodyweight and one other piece of equipment – preferably something portable, so I can find myself a little piece of floor space and just get to it.
This medicine ball workout has been designed with exactly this in mind. All you need it a yoga mat, a medicine ball and a little piece of floorspace.
