The Rotational Med Ball Throw is a great exercise for your lacrosse strength and conditioning program to increase shot power.

Every one wants to rip rope and score goals to help their team win and obviously having a harder shot will always help (although accuracy is more important).

Medicine Balls are a great tool to have in your toolbox to use in your training and you are only limited by your creativity with what you can do with them.

The Rotational Med Ball Throw is a Level 1 progression we use to teach the athlete to transfer force from the lower body, through the hips into the upper body.

The key is to only use your arms as a guide. You actually throw the ball with your hips and torso by rotating and snapping that back hip towards the wall/partner.

Perform 5-8 reps on each side and be as explosive as can be every rep (Brett help back in the video because I was standing close for the sake of the camera. And again, ideally use a concrete wall to throw against).
