Health watch: Adding a medicine ball to your workout

Carol White says, ' I'd like to show you an exercise that you can do while you are doing your cardio workout. We are going to start with a bike today we are going to incorporate a medicine ball and they are all weighted differently. What you want to do is add more intensity, more flair some fun keep your workouts exciting. Which just means lets work a little harder its a new year have a lot of things to look forward to.So we have the medicine ball one exercise you can do is just move it up and down just like this so you are peddling now you are working your core, your balance, stability. Change it up and do one arm at a time. When you do the one arm at a time count so its equal. Now you can do these little twists very gently through your waist just pace yourself. You can do a bicep curl, bring it down. Up and down like this. If you get tired at anytime you can just hold the ball here or you can put it down on the ground and go out like this get some arms and shoulders. Alternate if you would like, you got triceps as you can see there are many things you can do have some fun create some variety in your workout. That's what working out it all about is having fun.
