J. Lo’s trainer recommends using a medicine ball regularly for good reason—it’s a low-investment piece of equipment that easily levels up otherwise too easy movements, plus it’s especially good for firing up the core. And I think most of us would agree that whatever J. Lo is having, we want to be having, too.
In this workout, Dong utilizes the ball in a variety of ways as she runs through a mat workout that looks deceptively gentle but is actually pretty hardcore. There are leg lifts (and excruciating) lowers done with a medicine ball tucked between the thighs, bridges that burn so good, oblique twists, and more.
While it’s unlikely I’ll ever get J. Lo’s abs as someone who sits at a desk all day, it’s worth a shot at working towards them with this investment of just 15 minutes a day. Press play to squeeze (pun intended) this medicine ball core workout into your (otherwise not-too-J. Lo-esque) day.
