Smash-Down

by Keli Roberts

Description

Start by bringing a medicine ball overhead, coming up onto your toes and into spinal extension, and smash the ball down as hard as you can. The next progression here is to bring the squat into a dynamic side to side movement. Smash down and squat side to side. Our last progression adds a really dynamic skip. Start with getting the skip going and then we add the smash. So we skip and we skip and then we add the smash down. You'll get some great work with your tennis serve with that one as well.
