    I've noticed it my friend, oh Physics have I noticed it! On another note, exactly how do I use a medicine ball with burpees? Diagrams? Any other MBall drills?

    Burpees, grasshoppers, mountainclimbers, pushups, squats, shadowboxing, various footwork drills... it's all good for indoors.

    Grasshoppers... I'll describe them:

    You get in the top of a push-up position and touch the top of one foot to the wrist of your opposite arm by swinging it under your body, and alternate (that's one count)... doing them as fast as possible without really compromising your push-up position is key (or so I find).

    Mountain Climbers are where you are in top push-up position again, but you just basically run in place, bringing your knees towards your chest with every step.

    Each one easily gets your "cardio" up there. Jogging is for the birds.

    It never hurts to learn how to run far away like a jackrabbit on crack. :toothy6:

    Med Ball burpees

    •Hold Med Ball
    •Put ball on floor and squat thrust out so you end up in a narrow grip pushup position with hands on the ball
    •Narrow grip pushup with both hands on ball
    •Second half of squat thrust so legs jump towards ball
    •Jump up in air with med ball above your head
    •Land, squat down, put med ball on the floor and repeat

    Im no good at explaining things :)

    As regards med ball drills, I have a few. Someone at the club asked today what to do with a med ball. I told him to go outside sometime, spend 10 minutes throwing it around. When he finds something that makes him knackered, keep doing it.

    Things you can do with a med ball for general conditioning...

    •Throw them against a hard object (wall) with force
    •Slam them on the floor with force and try to catch them from the minimal "bounce" you'll get
    •Chest passes with a friend
    •Lie on back, throw ball in the air
    •Crunches while holding the ball
    •Underarm throws and catches

    There are a million more things but the basic principles are throw, catch, slam. Experiment, get worn out, then repeat :)

    Thank you, I will actually buy a medicine ball either today or tomorrow and get cracking with it. Aswell as the burpees obviously.

    I was taught the Lebell grip, "woman" (from the knees) pushups and squats were good and I'm inclined to agree.
    What am I?:

    I am ignorant, thieving, lying, hypocrital, violent and thoroughly self obssessed. I steal from others to make myself look better, only to make the item or information worse.

    I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.

    That's right children, I'm your average AMERICUNT! and I exemplify AMERICA!:911flag:

    Yes, through persistent lack of work and the cultivation of ignorance, he is a true American.

    Our club just got some sand filled ones from century... They're pretty heavy and a bugger to use because they aren't solid. Not tried burpees yet but something like that may make them harder still. Just a thought.

    Seriously though - good choice. The med ball will be the best thing you've bought for quite a while!
