This week's movement of the week is a familiar one, yahoo!! We are going to leverage how we push off with our feet in combination with contracting the opposite side to slam the ball!
Although this movement has us being quite athletic due to the Bosu ball, it is still a basic movement. You will step onto the Bosu ball and allow it to 'push' you into your lateral step slam.
Here's the key - as you step on the bosu ball, let's say with your left foot, you will need to lengthen the right side of your body. Now, as you come off of the Bosu by pushing with your left foot, you will contract the right side of your body as you slam the ball into the floor & FOLLOW THROUGH!!
