The Spikeball Workout: How To Get Shredded Playing Spikeball
Spikeball is, without a doubt, one of the most Bro-tastic beach and backyard games of the summer. All that radical motion is great for your core, too — Especially in sand where you’re balancing your inertia with an odd center-of-gravity. It’s great exercise and only going to get bigger and bigger over the next few summers.
We talked to ReebokOne Trainer Andy Dooley — swagged out in ZPrint Run Ultraknits and Reebok’s combat boxing shorts — bout how to stay in peak physical shape so that you’re dominating every single Spikeball game you play.
If you don’t already have a Spikeball set, go grab one before summer’s over on Amazon. In specific, these exercises are designed to help increase strength, explosiveness and muscle reaction.
1. Lateral Shuffles
Squat down as if in a basketball defensive stance and shuffle back and forth tapping cones on each side.
2. Lateral Half Kneel to sprint burpee
Get into a half kneelling position. one hip is extended with your weight pressed on the heel and leg, with a slight lean forward. The opposite hip and knee are flexed to about 90 degrees on the ground. The knee that is in the upward position will push off of the ground, trunk rotation in the direction to sprint to the cone. Once you reach the cone, drop down into a burpee and return back up. Then reset to go the opposite way.
