Medicine ball scoop throw

The medicine ball scoop throw is an explosive exercise targeting the abdominals and hips. It can be performed for lower reps with a focus on power or for higher reps with a focus on fat loss and conditioning. It begins in a semi-squat position holding a medicine ball, which then gets "scooped" up and thrown overhead in one continuous movement.


  1. Build explosive power in lower and upper body simultaneously
  2. Great carryover to rugby and many other sports
  3. Effective even with a relatively light medicine ball
