What is the difference between a medicine ball and a slam ball?
Traditionally a medicine ball is far larger than a slam ball, and made from leather. Medicine balls are designed more so for encouraging more mobility work through exercises such as v-ups, rolling push ups and Russian Twists. A medicine ball should not be bounced as they can bounce back quickly and causing injuries. A slam ball on the other hand is more durable, often made from high density rubber and filled with sand to prevent them from bouncing. This product is a hybrid between the two as it durable enough to be slammed and thrown but it is also fantastic for mobility work outs, just as a medicine ball would do.
