–Medicine Ball Chase–
Sprints are great for getting leaner. I like to liven things up by implementing a medicine ball into my sprints.
In this video, I’m using a 12 pound medicine ball (it doesn’t bounce). As I come out of the start, I pick up the ball and chest press it as forcefully as I can, then chase it down for 20 yards or so.
Repeat for a total of 5 rounds (or more).
Great conditioning workout and fun to do.
To incorporate these in a bootcamp setting, you can line up 5 people side by side and have them do this for 3 minutes. See who gets the most sprints knocked out in those 3 minutes.
Be sure to warm up thoroughly before doing these. The danger of pulling a hamstring is high if you don’t warm up for 10-15 minutes.
