Supine One-Arm Overhead Throw

The sit-up with single-arm overhand throw is an exercise targeting the core muscles, but the inclusion of the throw brings in other upper-body muscles. When you come to the top of the sit-up position, you throw a medicine ball using one arm at a personal trainer or spotter—who will throw it right back to you, to be caught with both hands. It can be performed for time or reps as part of the ab-focused portion of any workout.


  1. Develops strength in the core and hip flexors
  2. The throwing motion really works the shoulders and lats, but also amps oblique activation
  3. Simple way to make traditional sit-ups more difficult
