    Stupid Question:

    Are those med Ball Throws into a Press-Up position sore on the landing? A lot of impact?
    Are they done on the track?

    I am probably missing something here- are we talking a squat throw from the chest explosively out into the press-up position?!

    They're best done on grass but indoors you can use a mat on either side to have your hands land on. In any case, if you go forward enough and throw in a forward trajectory, you'll land from a lower height.

    On the GPP video you show a chart of med ball work, with one group bieng the throws, throws with hops Etc. The other group on the chart said "med ball accelerations", are those just throws followed by a short run while the other group is just throws in place?

    I had a little trouble finding this too! The Med Ball accelerations are the last two exercises demonstrated for Explosive Medball Work.
