Olympic Lift Alternatives

In my Truth About Olympic Lifts article, I mentioned alternative methods to developing explosive power and force transfer.

The medicine ball exercises featured in the videos below are fantastic methods of developing explosive power without the learning curve required to properly perform Olympic lifts.

Plus, these medicine ball exercises build the foundation for a few more advanced versions in which I will provide in an upcoming post.

Be sure to perform these exercises as explosively as possible.

Both of these medicine ball exercises are personal favorites of mine.
There’s nothing better than getting outside, getting a tan and taking your aggressions out on a poor old defenseless medicine ball.
