 Explains the essentials of the "medicine ball for all" program and describes training procedures that can be used for enhancing health and fitness in elementary, middle, and secondary school children. The medicine ball training program presented in this book involves core-strengthening rotational movements and diagonal patterns through different planes of motion. The warm-up sessions in this book include dynamic exercises with medicine balls characterized by multiplanar movements performed throughout a full range of motion. Of course, our ultimate goal is to teach students how to remain physically fit so that they become active for life. Includes free 49-minute companion DVD.
