This truly is a great little book. I've bought other books on medicine ball training but this one has the best photos (color) and simple, easy to follow directions. It seems to be written for both beginners and the more advanced, depending on the exercise chosen. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to add medicine ball training to their routine.

After completing the exercises in "The Great Medicine Ball Handbook," I felt I had achieved a full-body workout. The exercises are divided up into: Core, Lower Body, Upper Body, Throws and Catches and Rotator Cuff. If you are exercising by yourself then you can't do the Throws and Catches. You also need a small medicine ball to do the Rotator Cuff exercises. For most of the exercises you can use a 6-pound medicine ball.

Some of the exercises include:

Standing Twist
Crunch
Pullover Sit-up
Seated Twist
Split squat
Reverse Lunge
Tricep Exstension
Overhead Toss

The easiest way to use this book (so it stays open) is to cut it in half. Then, simply punch holes in the corner of each page and put it on a metal ring. This will allow all the pages to lay flat when you are exercising. This book also includes a brief section on stretching, muscle diagrams and information on aerobic training. You can start with as little as 8 reps per exercise and work your way up to two sets of fifteen reps.

This is a good book for the beginner and I highly recommend it if you want to learn many exercises you can do with your medicine ball alone or with partners. I also have enjoyed the Strength Ball Training book. It is more detailed and includes movements with both the stability ball and the medicine ball. I find these two books together give a good intro to medicine ball training.

Firstly this is a stretch to call it a book, its more like a pamphlet. Although it has nice color pictures it contains very little practical information, on important areas like which muscle groups are used, alignment concerns, possible stress areas, technique tips, etc. I returned the this item.

Wonder what those medicine balls in the gym are there for? Very rarely did I see anyone using them. This brief book gives you an introduction to all the different types (more than one?) and shows the exercises. You can even get a rebounder to "play catch." However, the revelation for me was there are 21 core exercises you can do! Some of these are similar to exercises with dumbbells or kettle bells, but some not. There are also 10 lower body, 6 upper body and 12 throw and catch exercises, with 4 special rotator cuff exercises. Who knew? Would only wish there were a Kindle version for me to take to the gym.

Format: Paperback
The book is well illustrated with easy to follow written directions. Some of the exercises are repetitive, but there is enough variation to achieve an excellent workout.

I enjoy the medicine ball and this book easily assists to get the most out of your workout without boredom.

I used this book to develop alternate dynamic training routines for the soldiers I work with. To that end we got several good workouts, as well as supplementary workouts and filler exercises from this book, and not one of them were a waste. I like this book and I recommend it.

After completing PT for back pain, I was pleased to find a book on using the medicine ball. It helps with the arm exercises.
