Use: Medicine balls can be used for a wide variety of exercises, and specifically can be a great tool to work on core strength and power development via a variety of slams. Due to their added weight, medicine ball work is an excellent way to develop strength and power through the same motor patterns that translate directly to sport performance. For example, many baseball pitchers will perform medicine ball slams with a pitcher’s windup, basketball players will use medicine balls to mimic rebounding, and so on and so forth. They are a really versatile way to bring some athletic movements into any workout

On top of being functional, we have found these specific medicine balls to be more durable and better balanced than medicine balls we have used in the past. You will often see our trainers use medicine balls when they create programs for their clients, and you will often see us using them ourselves. If you want to become a stronger, faster, and more powerful athlete, including medicine balls in your training regiment is absolutely essential.
