Wednesday Form: Core to Extremity!
Med ball clean demo: watch it here
Set-up: Start in a good squat position. Chest up, head neutral, weight in heels. The ball is on the ground between your knees.
Movement: Accelerate hip (to FULL extension). Shrug. Slip under the ball while it hovers in zero gravity. Catch the ball in a squat position. Reset and repeat.
Common faults: Curling the ball, not fully extending and opening the hip (muted hip).
Notes: Your hands rotate around the horizontal axis of the ball: the side of the ball that was away from you at the beginning is still facing away from you at the end of the movement! Try it with a large med ball some time, laces out the whole time.
