Push Press Throw (med ball)

What is the Push Press Throw (med ball)?

Push Press Throw (med ball) is a variation of the Push Press exercise that is done using a medicine ball instead of a barbell or dumbbells. It is a full-body explosive movement that targets the shoulders, triceps, upper back and core. The exercise starts with holding a medicine ball at chest level, then perform a dip and drive motion similar to the standard push press. Instead of pressing the weight overhead, you throw the medicine ball as far as possible. The push press throw is used as a strength and conditioning exercise to improve power, explosiveness, and coordination. It can also be used as a cardiovascular exercise, as it is an intense, full-body movement that can elevate the heart rate.

Purpose

The purpose of the Push Press Throw (med ball) is to improve power, explosiveness, and coordination in the upper body and core. The explosive nature of the movement helps to increase muscle power and speed, which can be beneficial for sports or activities that require quick and powerful movements. It also improves overall full-body coordination and stability, as the core muscles are activated throughout the movement to maintain balance. Additionally, it can also be used as a cardiovascular exercise, as it is an intense, full-body movement that can elevate the heart rate. It is also a great way to add variation to your training routine and improve muscle imbalances and core stability. It is also used in some sports as a way of developing explosive power and speed, and can be useful for athletes looking to improve their performance in various sports.
