Dropping the ball

One of the reasons I love working out with Lonnie is that every workout is different.   And one of the reasons I hate working out with Lonnie is that every workout is TOUGH!  (kidding! a little….)

Here is a clip of an exercise we did last week.  The goal was to do drop the 8lb medicine ball, do 3 quick hops, squat down on my toes, and pick it back up with only one bounce.   As you can see, I failed miserably at that goal!

This is MUCH harder than it seems and by the end of the two minutes I was crying.   (and unfortunately my form was suffering too!) I did 4 sets of this exercise (2 minutes each).

Try it at home and let me know how it goes.  In the meantime, enjoy my pain and suffering!


  1. WOW!!!!!! That’s HARD, lol!!!!! No wonder you don’t look like you had a baby recently. Or…ever. (How are the little munchkins doing? How are YOU doing? Ah, summer. Remember when WE had summer vacation?)

  3. Nice! I’m going to try that during my workout tomorrow. My quads need to do some screaming. 😉

  5. I admit, I have not been on this webpage in a long time… however it was another joy to see It is such an important topic and ignored by so many, even professionals.

  7. Wow, I bet that is tough. Love that it’s something I can do at home!

  8. Wow,very intense. But you did it! And i will too tonight when I do my workout. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Wow, that’s a cool exercise. Perfect warm up. Looks very simple and I can already hear my clients questioning the effectiveness. Can’t wait to try it out… and make it sweat. They’ll probably be walking funny afterwards.
