Full Body Fat Burn using a Medicine Ball, Momentum
Are you looking for a new exercise to do in the gym or outdoors? The medicine ball tearaway is hard to beat for a full body fat burn that has a functional fitness component to it. The exercise uses lateral momentum to activate as many muscles as possible. 30 seconds of this drill guarantees to raise even the hardiest of athletes.
We had fun shooting this outside in civic park right outside the capitol building. Lots of good open space to use for a workout if you’re ever in the neighborhood 🙂
In our Denver fitness studio we use this medicine ball as part of our full body routines, but we don’t use it every workout (because we have so many other fun exercises we’re playing with it just wouldn’t be fair to the other pieces of functional equipment we have!)
If you think you’ve seen it all before, here’s your new exercise to play with.

However, don’t attempt this exercise without having first done a few ‘test runs’. As with any exercise, if you aren’t familiar with what can go wrong, you can be sure you’ll find out sooner or later.
HOW NOT TO USE A MEDICINE BALL AS PART OF YOUR FULL BODY WORKOUT
The moral of the story: Check the bounce factor of your medicine ball before you smash it with full body force into the ground.
Okay so now you’ve seen that, I’m going to trust that you won’t make that mistake… ever.
If I ever see you do this in our Denver Bonza Bodies fitness studio, expect me to refer you to this blog post… after I get you an icepack, that is.
Yours in health,
