Medicine Ball Slams
Medicine ball slams are an effective and surprisingly fun way to develop power in your lats (back). This is an advanced exercise which requires a base level of strength so it should only be attempted after a few months of regular resistance training.
- Hold a medicine ball with both hands and stand with your feet at shoulder width. This will be your starting position.
- Initiate the countermovement by raising the ball above your head and fully extending your body.
- Reverse the motion, slamming the ball into the ground directly in front of you as hard as you can.
- Receive the ball with both hands on the bounce and repeat the movement
