Chest pass against a wall
To perform the chest pass against a wall, simply stand with your feet shoulder width apart and hold the medicine ball in front of your chest. Throw the ball against the wall and make sure your arms extend as much as is comfortable for your range of motion. Finally, catch the med ball on the return. This is a great warmup for the pecs, triceps and shoulders.
Most would recommend 5 feet, but the distance between you and the wall depends on your fitness level / comfort level. Throughout the exercise, make sure to balance your weight evenly on your feet and bend your knees. You want to have your knees slightly bent and not be in a full squat position.
Overhead throw against a wall
Start with your feet together and raise the med ball overhead. As you throw the slam ball against the wall, step forward with your left leg. Bend your left knee as you move your leg forward and complete the throw with your arms straight ahead and above you. As the wall rolls the ball towards you, grab it and return to the starting position. For the next throw, alternate your forward stepping leg.
This is a full body warm up which focuses on your abdominals, lats and triceps with this exercise.To a lesser extent, your leg muscles will also be warmed up with this exercises.
Stand with your feet hip width apart. Hold the ball with both hands to one side. Using your core, whip the ball forward and to an angle so you can catch it on the other side. Whip the ball side to side while keeping your core engaged to protect your lower back to stretch and warm-up your abdominals. These are similar to Russian twists, however, you can do side to side twists while standing.
