Bounce?

Is this ball designed to bounce or can it be used for slam exercises without flying back and hitting me in the face ?

I'm fairly certain this ball is not very bouncy.

Great grip

Fantastic tool for core training. The texture provides a better grip when perspiration comes into play. 12Lbs. ball also provides better resistance after months of training with a 10Lbs. ball.

Yes this ball is comparable to a basketball, although not precisely the same (just in case you were looking for something extremely exact).

definite improved grip

The main selling point for rubberized medicine balls is the enhanced grip, and I have found that improvement to be very true. When you get sweaty and tired other medicine balls can slip become slick. The rubber provides great traction. Since this is a 12 lb ball you can be pretty sure that you'll be sweating by the end of the workout. Definitely recommended for grip and durability.

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.
