If you’re looking to get into shape and develop a powerful core, then a medicine ball can go a long way to help you achieve your fitness goals. Here are the best medicine ball core workouts that you should try out.

Deadbug Pullover

Lay with your back on the floor and hold the medicine ball directly above your chest. Bend your knees into a tabletop position. Keep your torso still as you reach your arms and legs away from your torso before gradually bringing them back into their original position.

Seated Leg Raise

Sit on the floor with your knees bent and keep your legs together. Place your medicine ball on the right of your feet and press your palms into the floor alongside your torso for some stability. Lift your legs up over the ball and tap down before doing the same on the other side.

Russian Twist

Lie down on your back with your knees bent at almost 90 degrees. Hug the medicine ball close to your chest and twist your shoulders from side to side while remaining stable. Include a ball bounce after each rep for an added challenge.
