Balls to the Walls!


Yep.  Let's talk balls!

Now stay with me, we are talking about balls to use in our fitness routines.

All kinds of balls. Large, small, hard, soft, weighted, and inflated. I kid you not!

You still with me?

Slam balls are weighted balls, larger in size, made to be slammed against the walls, or floor.  Used in cross fit, and boot camps world wide!  Varying in weights from 4-20 lbs, they are very durable! Dynamax and Troy make fantastic versions of slam balls.

Medicine Balls are also weighted balls, resembling basketballs.  Used in many exercises from squats, to thrusts, and abdominal work. Also varying in weights and sizes, from 4-25 lbs.  Cap and Valeo are a few manufacturers.

Body Balls, also called Stability Balls are very popular as well.  These can be used in place of chairs, or even benches!  Planking on body balls requires core strength and balance.  Add dumb bells to these exercises and you have yourself a workout!  Sold in various sizes to accommodate different heights.  55cm (from 4'8"-5'3"), 65cm (5'4-5'10"") and 75cm (5'10"-6'4").

Soft Mini Xerball (Weighted Balls) are soft, weighted mini medicine balls.  They provide a unique strength conditioning alternative. Durable, 4-inch sand filled balls fit comfortably in the palm of your hand.  Also vary in weight, from 4-8 lbs.  Spri is a manufacturer of these products.
