Here is a twist on an old favorite. Supermans, or "dead fish," are a staple in many runners' general strength routines. Adding a med ball places more emphasis on strength in the muscles of the upper back. Just like regular Supermans, cue the athlete to lift the limbs with the upper back and the glutes. Make sure that you can see daylight between the quads and the floor and the chest and floor. Overall, you are getting a great strength activity that focuses on the entire posterior chain.
