    The trend in fitness is toward core strength; strong abdominals, obliques and back muscles. The core group of muscles are often the initial source of physical movement, therefore, having a strong core is crucial to both sport success for the athlete and functional movement for the average person. Because of it's size, weight, and easy handling ability, the medicine ball is an excellent exercise tool for working the core. The Great Medicine Ball handbook is printed in color; 64 pages.
