Medicine Ball Side Throws

Medicine Ball Side Throws – Plyometrics Exercise

This page will teach you how to do Medicine Ball Side Throws (or Side Toss). This plyometrics exercise is used to improve a martial artist’s arm, chest and core strength. In turn, this will help the martial artist to generate stronger punches and grappling techniques.

While medicine ball side throws are seen as an upper body exercise, it is also a great core exercise. In this plyometrics exercise, you will rotate and throw the medicine ball at a wall (or to a partner) from your side. This will help to improve your rotational or twisting power.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor to ensure the proper technique is being utilized and to avoid potential injuries. For additional exercises, please visit the main Medicine Ball Workouts or Physical Fitness sections.
