Welcome back to Day 24 of our "30 Days of Fitness" series. Every day for the month of November we will be posting an exercise that you can do with your loved one at home. Today's exercise is the Seated Medicine Ball Overhead Press.
1) Sit in the chair with chest upright and arms holding medicine ball in line with your shoulders.
2) With hands neutral on the ball, press the ball over your head until arms are fully extended.
3) Return under control to bottom position and repeat.
Notes: Allow head to slightly protrude forward as you press up.
