Situps work your six-pack muscles. However, you can score a bullet-proof core and gain laser-like precision in any sport by adding a medicine-ball throw to the move. "Power and speed are dangerous without control," says David Jack, owner of ActivPrayer in Phoenix, Arizona and creator of 30 Days to Ripped.

Imagine a hockey player shooting a puck. He can hit it hard and fast, but without accuracy the shot won't go anywhere near the goal. The med-ball situp throw not only works your core like a classic situp, but it also teaches you accuracy and increases your athleticism. Aiming for a spot on the wall or your partner's chest forces you to control the direction and intensity of the ball.
