This is where we use what is called a medicine ball. For those of you who do not know what a medicine ball is, it is an oversized-like basketball which weighs about 10 to 15 pounds...give or take. These drills are done both standing and sitting (to isolate upper torso).

Opposite shoulder to opposite shoulder:

  • Each player is back to back...one has the ball and each turn opposite shoulder and hands off the ball, then they turn to the other shoulders and hand off..repeating drill. IE. Player one has ball, he turns to his left shoulder while the player 2 turns to his right shoulder to receive hand off. Player 2 turns to his left while player 1 turns to his right to receive.

Same shoulder to same shoulder:

  • Same drill as above only instead: Player one has ball, he turns to his left shoulder while the player 2 turns to his left shoulder to receive hand off. Player 2 turns to his right while player 1 turns to his right to receive.

Once again each drill is done both sitting and standing: 25 reps each for a total of 100 reps.
