Why is a medicine ball called by that name?? It seems centuries back, the words health and medicine were interchangeable – records from hundreds of years back talk about people using a weighted ball to do ‘medicinal gymnastics’! And much before that, in Ancient Greece, Hippocrates is said to have advised their use for all-round health.
Fact is that using the medicine ball is a great way to raise the bar while doing basic exercises and, at the advance level, to add intensity to your routine. Here are some great ideas for medicine ball workouts at home.
