I was thinking of buying a medicine ball for some home workout antics. I know that effectively they are nearly all the same but any could anybody recommend any decent makes/brands and where to buy? I've tried using med balls in the past with and without handle grips but not sure which way to go. I can see the benefit of both. Med balls with grips possibly have a few more applications for kettle bell type routines but not so good for bouncing or rolling.
I've been using a BBE 4Kg double grip one. Not had any problems with bouncing (throwing it off a wall) no rolling, found the handles great for doing one arm pushups
I'd second the BBE ones
Impatiently, I went out today just a couple of hours after I posted this thread and got hold of a Lonsdale 5kg medicine ball minus any grips. Seems like a decent make and was 20 squid. I'll see how it goes. I was thinking of using it mainly in the morning before i go to work for a bit of conditioning and to kickstart my metablism. At the moment I train in the evenings 6 days a week but I'm sat in an office for 37 hours a week as well. I thought med ball workouts would be a bit more interesting than just press-ups, squats, crunches etc.
I've seen a few good exercises on the net but if anybody would like to share some of their own routines and exercises that would be great.
