Single Leg Medicine Ball Diagonal Chops - Martial Arts Strength Training

This page provides details on "Single Leg Medicine Ball Diagonal Chops". This plyometrics exercise will improve arm, chest and core strength. In turn, this will help to generate stronger punches and grappling techniques. It is also used to improve conditioning. In this plyometrics exercise, an athlete will hold a medicine ball in two hands and move the ball diagonally across their body. This exercise is also known as a single leg medicine ball lift and chop.

This is an advanced version of the traditional medicine ball diagonal chop because it provides martial artists with additional balance training. In addition, standing on one leg will add a greater strength workout as a person's body reacts to the relative instability of the exercise. All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor to ensure the proper technique is being utilized and to avoid potential injuries. For additional exercises, please visit the main Medicine Ball Workouts or Physical Fitness sections.
