Overview

The medicine ball pike is an exercise targeting the abdominal muscles, particularly the rectus abdominis or six-pack muscles. The medicine ball adds resistance and continuous tension to this popular exercise. To perform the medicine ball pike, start by lying on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Hold a medicine ball in your hands at your chest. Exhale and engage your core, then raise your legs and upper body off the floor until you form a pike position. Hold the position for a second, then slowly lower back down to the starting position. Repeat for 10-12 reps.
