This is entry #1 of the SAMM Series (Super Amazing moveBALL™ Moves). We've got an entire exercise library in store, and we'll bring you a new SAMM every three weeks. So keep checking back!
The Squat Thrust (aka burpee) plus Angle Chop is our first choice, because it is a comprehensive, functional, and time-effective way to strength every muscle head to toe. It's a heart-pumping, calorie-burning good time!
Begin in a wide squat, one foot on each side of your moveBALL™. Ball is in stable position with top handle facing forward. Hands on the ball, shoulders aligned over wrists.
Jump or walk feet back into a plank position. Abdominal muscles are engaged to ensure low back doesn't sway.
Jump or walk feet back into the wide squat position. Change hand position to grab ahold of the handle.
With power, extend knees and hips to a standing position and swing (chop) moveBALL™ up on a diagonal. Return to start.
Repeat, alternating the angle chop (R/L) with each repetition.
This movement fits perfectly into any workout. Try 10-20 repetitions, or a 45-60 second interval.
