One-Arm Medicine Ball Slam

The single-arm medicine ball slam is an explosive exercise that targets numerous muscles, but primarily the core and lats (latissimus dorsi). You won't be able to slam the ball nearly as hard as you can with two arms, but the single-arm version provides the same type of coordination and power challenge. It can be performed for time or reps in an upper body or conditioning-focused workout.


  1. Works the core, lats, and shoulders
  2. Pairs with strength or muscle-focused movements to make a circuit more metabolically taxing
  3. Burns significant calories if performed for reps
