Slam Balls are one of the most versatile and durable tools you can add to your Home or Garage Gyms. Slam Ball allow for a wide range of exercises, ranges of motion, and movement speeds that cannot be achieved with traditional gym equipment. Slam Balls can be especially useful for developing your ability to generate a lot of force, aka POWER.
Slam balls are a great tool for full body workouts, they allow for a vast range of exercises. Allowing you to develop multiple muscle groups; all this whilst producing more power, increasing your heart rate and burning more calories.
Picking up a slam ball can utilize the same muscles as more complex weightlifting moves. Plus, the fact that it’s a relatively unstable object forces you to adjust on the fly, especially as you rest the ball on one shoulder or another. Also, since it doesn’t do damage when it hits the floor, it’s the only piece of gym equipment that you can actively hurl at the ground without worrying of damaging it.
Here is the exercise list:
Slam Ball Push Ups
Get into a standard push up position with your hands placed on the Slam Ball. Your body should form a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders.
Slam Ball Alternating Hand Push Ups
Start in standard push-up position with one hand on the floor and the other hand on top of the slam ball.
Lower your torso towards the floor. Pause and press back up to the starting position. You can either roll the slam ball towards other hand or more your torso over the ball to make it more challenging.
Slam Ball Cleans
A staple exercise for Crossfitters
Position yourself in a standard deadlift position with your feet just outside shoulder-width. Place the Slam Ball on the ground between your feet. Squat down with your hands outside the ball and arms perpendicular to the ground.
Begin coming up from the squat and pushing your hips forward so that you are standing straight, then immediately, all in one motion, shrug your shoulders.
Immediately following the shrug, squat down and allow your hands to come under the ball so that the ball is at head level. Finish the movement by coming back up from the squat so that you are standing straight.
