My sister Traci saw this killer core workout at a tennis coaches’ seminar in Indianapolis a few weeks ago. Naturally she felt compelled to buy an oversized medicine ball of her own, and now our Sunday dinners at my parents’ house are invariably preceded by a couple sets of the “wall ball shuffle.”
It’s pretty simple: Basically, the person doing the workout shuffles back and forth, catching the heavy ball and tossing it back. It’s way more grueling than it appears; we set the timer for 30 seconds and we’re always glad when it goes off. The ball tosser gets fairly gassed as well, so we usually rotate through and take a turn at both spots. (To see the video version of Traci and Madison doing this workout, click here.)
Traci got her ball at Dick’s Sporting Goods for around $70; you can get them on Amazon in a variety of sizes and a pretty huge price range – up to 150 pounds for just under $500!
