Rotational Med Ball Scoop Toss variations are something that we use often at CDSF to develop rotational power for our field sport athletes, especially athletes who play sports with high rotational demands like baseball, lacrosse, field hockey, and golf.
In today’s post CDSF coach Mike Sirani covers three advanced progressions that teach using momentum, loading in and out of your back hip, and using the ground and your core to transfer force from your lower to upper body, and develop rotational power that will transfer to your sport.
1. Step-Behind MB Scoop Toss- great for teaching athletes to create and use momentum as they load into their front hip.
2. Step-Back MB Scoop Toss- great for teaching athletes to load and explode out of their back hip.
3. 2-Hop MB Scoop Toss- A more advanced exercise that teaches athletes to load and explode while using momentum in a more athletic manner.
