[Trainer] Here with Zach Johnson.
00:01
Welcome to Friday Morning Fitness.
00:03
We're gonna work on a little medicine ball routine
00:05
and this is the chop that his trainer,
00:07
Chris Noss, and I use to help Zach
00:09
get good range of motion.
00:11
Both side to side, notice how his
00:13
head just drops straight up and down
00:14
the spine line.
00:16
We like to see eight to 12 reps on each side.
00:19
He's using an eight-pound medicine ball
00:21
and notice how fluid he is.
00:22
Each repetition is exactly the same.
00:26
Let's switch to the floor position
00:28
and we'll do some core here.
00:31
Knees bent, feet up.
00:32
You can see how he's in a good position.
00:35
Rotating side to side.
00:36
At home, if you want to try this,
00:37
you don't even need a medicine ball.
00:39
You can do it just with your hands.
00:41
Notice how much speed we're using in this workout.
00:46
Add these two exercises to your routine
00:48
for off-season training,
00:50
and you'll be as good as Zach Johnson.
00:52
Yeah. (laughs)
