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. They are versatile conditioning tools and can be used in many different situations, from rehabilitation to performance enhancement. As opposed to other exercise equipment, medicine balls can be thrown, caught and bounced.
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. 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 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.
