What I'm Lovin'

Oh my gosh! I love these MED-BALLS!!!!! I have 2, 14 and 20 pounds. I "made" 2 sixteen pounders. They're NOT pretty but I made them for $10 versus $100!

I use them for squat presses, squat clean and press, wall-balls, slam-ball, crunches, weighted burpees, ham- curls...I could go on and on! Come to my place and I'll put you through med ball torture! Any time ;)

To make your own med ball you need a basketball, sand, old blankets, duct tape and a scale. Cut a 5 or 6 inch slice on the ball, fill with the desired amount of sand. Stuff the remaining space with material, tape the hole closed. Wrap the ball in a blanket or 2 and tape the crap out of it! You want your ball to be about 42 inches around. I taped the first blanket on and added another one and taped that one on to get 42 or so inches. You will love/hate your homemade med-ball!!

Starting over is the bravest kind of starting there is. ~Dan Taylor

  1. Experienced med-ball "fun" first hand :)- Feel muscles in my lats that I have never felt before. Completely exhausted at the end of my squat and press sets. Awesome workout Tammy!
