Medicine Ball 200
MB 200 is supposedly one of the training routines used by the North Carolina Tar Heels. Hey, they’re champions, so I presume they know a thing or two about training that works!
Our routine includes 10 exercises, each with 20 repetitions (reps, in short), therefore the name (10×20).
It should be done in the following manner:
- A full set of 200, allowing a brief pause between each of the 10 exercises; if a true beginner, take time to catch your breath. But you should perceive each exercise as hard enough to push you a bit; if there is one exercise you can not do for 20 reps, remember that number and try to beat it each time you train again.
- At its completion, rest, walk around, shake arms and legs for a couple of minutes.
- Repeat the full set of 200.
- Hit the shower.
- Repeat every other day; you have to give your body time to recover and repair. We grow stronger through a cycle which goes like this: stress, recover, adapt. Give your body time to recover and you will adapt at a slightly higher level of fitness each time.
