Medicine Balls and Slammer Balls are weighted exercise balls meant to provide resistance training while performing exercises such as sledgehammers, chop throws and Russian Twists. Exercise balls used for building strength and coordination aren’t just limited to Medicine Balls anymore. Today, if you want to purchase weighted exercise balls you’ll find many different shapes, sizes and weights available that are sure to be a perfect fit for the home, exercise studio or club. One of the most popular weighted balls is the Slammer Ball, or “Slam Balls” as they are more commonly known as. Slam Balls are meant to be slammed against the ground or a wall and provide a great workout for the entire body. Slam balls start as light as 10 lbs. and go as heavy as 200 lbs. Most feature a heavy duty shell with a non-clumping filler and are designed to be slammed on hard surfaces over and over again.
The Medicine Ball has been around for almost 3,000 years. The Medicine Balls you’ll find at Ironcompany.com begin at 2 lbs and graduate up to 30 lbs. Medicine ball sets, or Wall Balls as they are sometimes called, come in different firmness levels and different cover options. Some have a rubberized cover and some have a soft shell cover made from PVC. More modern ball designs include medicine balls with handles for easy gripping. You’ll even find self-guided SMART Medicine balls that guide the user through a series of exercises via printed images right on the ball.
