1.  Medicine ball slams

Take a medicine ball that’s an appropriate weight for you. Raise the medicine ball overhead then slam in onto the ground as hard as you can. Catch the medicine ball on its way back up and that counts as one rep. Repeat the movement for as many times that you can in one minute. Be sure to have your posture upright, knees slightly bent, feet shoulder width apart, engage your abdominals and do not hyperextend your back when you perform the exercise.

Repeat for 1 minute

2. Hip Thrust with band and dead lift

This is an awesome exercise if you want to increase your power. Attach a band to a stable object like a bar, machine ect. Use a lighter weight to start with then increase the weight thereafter. Start by wrapping the band over your hips so that the band is looped over your hips and pulling you towards where it is anchored. Take the barbell and start by lowering the weight down by keeping your knees slightly bent and as you feel your hamstrings fire you stand up and push your hips through. Hold this then repeat the exercise.

Repeat for 1 minute

Repeat this exercise for 1 minute

4. Hamstring curl on medicine ball 

Begin on the floor by lying on your back with your feet up on the ball. Start with double leg then advance to single leg.

Repeat for 30 seconds on each leg.
