Bend knees. Stand on right foot. Have your partner stand to your right. Raise left foot off floor and toss ball to your partner. Perform desired number of repetitions. Then switch legs and repeat the exercise with your partner standing on the opposite side.
TECHNIQUE: Remain stable while maintaining neutral shoulders throughout the exercise. Keep chest up and toes pointed straight ahead.
MODIFICATION: 1) If you can’t stabilize, or absorb the weight during the catch, select a lighter medicine ball. 2) If the exercise is too difficult, bend knees and stand on both feet while tossing the ball to your partner.
