Move of the Month: Overhead Slams
Are you looking for an explosive full-body exercise that will tighten and tone your arms and abs AND burn a whole heap of calories? Then grab a slam ball, hit the gym floor and follow these 4 easy steps.
NOTE: A dead ball or a slam ball is to be used for this exercise to ensure there is no bounce. DO NOT use a medicine ball for this move as you risk it bouncing back into your face or head. A hard carpet surface is the most ideal flooring to reduce bounce back.
Hold a dead ball with both hands and stand with your feet at shoulder width. This will be your starting position.
Initiate the counter movement by raising the ball above your head and fully extending your body.
Reverse the motion, slamming the ball into the ground directly in front of you as hard as you can.
Receive the ball with both hands and repeat the movement.
