Lately, I have been posting exercises and workouts that require minimum, if any, equipment. This is strictly for the purpose of you not having to make excuses about not having a gym membership, having a busy work schedule or just not having the time to take care of yourself. Here is a killer routine for you to add to your arsenal that can easily be done at home, your hotel or even at you “busy” job. All you need is a 10 – 20 lb. medicine ball or a phone book.

The Origins of the Medicine Ball
A medicine ball is a round weighted, leather ball. It’s mass ranges from two to about thirty pounds. It is a device often used and seen in physical therapy and rehabilitation clinics but can also be found in the gym for weight training and general exercise. Although this weighted ball may look simple with limited qualities, it is a great tool to improve your overall core strength, stability and especially muscle toning and weight loss goals.
