    What is a Medicine Ball?

    Medicine Balls are weighted balls that come in a variety of sizes and weights. There are balls that bounce (gel or water filled) and balls that don't bounce, called dead balls (often sand filled). They range from the size of a baseball to larger than a basketball. The surface can be smooth or textured.

    Balls have been used for training since the time of the ancient Greeks and the first Olympics: the concept is not new! They are versatile conditioning tools and can be used in many different situations, from rehabilitation to performance enhancement. Some advantages Medicine Balls have over dumbbells include an ability to be easily gripped in one hand. Plus they can be thrown, caught and bounced off a rebounder, the floor or a wall.

    Why train with a Medicine Ball?

    1. Great for explosive training or endurance training.
    2. Allows you to perform exercises in more than one plane of motion, unlike most machines.
    3. Medicine Ball exercises allow you to closely simulate the patterns and speed of movement that occur in sports and different work environments.
    4. Medicine Ball exercises also develop the central nervous system. They improve stabilizer and neutralizer strength by increasing demand on a neuromuscular level.
    5. There is a high functional carry-over into athletic performance and every day life.

    Medicine Balls Expert FAQs
       
    1. What weight medicine ball should I get?

      The weight of your medicine ball is the most important decision for you to make. For younger individuals (preteen) it's important not to overwhelm them with too much weight (if you choose to use any weight at all), so something as light as 4-6 lbs would be plenty.
      Anyone in the teen or adult range will want to consider their body weight when picking a ball. If you are in the 110-150 lb range you should probably start off in the 8-10 lb range. As you increase your body strength you can then increase the weight. If you weigh 160-190 lbs you might consider something in the 10-20 lb range. For individuals who are exceptionally fit or who have been training with medicine balls for a long time, you might challenge yourself with a ball in the 25-40 lb range.

    3. Smooth surface vs Textured surface

      The surface texture of your medicine ball is a purely personal preference. Some boxers enjoy the roughed rubber exterior that enhances the natural grip of the ball. When sweating, this can be a valuable asset. However, sometimes that same coating can be abrasive against the skin, and for individuals who are bothered by that there is a smooth surface alternative.

    5. How can I use a medicine ball to train body shots?

      Medicine ball training can increase your resistance to body shots by building up the muscles and increasing their ability to withstand impact.
      To increase the muscular strength of your abs and obliques, engage in activities that involve core workouts, such as crunches and single leg V-ups. The more muscular strength your abs have the more protection you have at your disposal.
      To increase your bodies resistance to blows, you need to start off by utilizing gentle impacts of the medicine ball to your abs and obliques. This can be done with a partner either from a standing position or as you lay down. Be careful not to punish your body too much as muscular durability needs to be built slowly over time.

    6.  
    7. How do you do crunches with a medicine ball?

      Medicine ball crunches are quite difficult and a great way to improve your abdominal strength. To do them, hold the medicine ball firmly against your upper chest, and if possible, have your feet secured to the ground by a partner or heavy object. Be careful not to injure yourself and only do a few at the start. The weight of the ball will definitely change the dynamic you are used to for performing crunches.
