Review of Medicine Ball

Gym Medicine Ball

What is a Medicine Ball?

An inexpensive and versatile item of gym equipment, a medicine ball is a weighted exercise ball that has been used for years to strengthen the upper body muscles (eg. chest muscles like pecs and back muscles like lats). Indeed, like many items of exercise equipment, the medicine ball was first utilised in rehabilitation and physical therapy clinics. These fitness balls typically come in weights of 2, 4, 7, 11 and 15 pounds.

New Medicine Ball Fitness Workout

One drawback of medicine ball workouts was the need for a partner or a trainer with whom to exercise. Now, new exercise equipment is available to allow exercisers, gymnasts and athletes to perform medicine ball workouts by themselves. The Plyoback® exercise system - based on plyometric exercises which means that you work as many muscles as possible at one time for total body workout and bone building - is one option.

Plyoback Medicine Ball Workouts

The Plyoback operates in similar fashion to a pitchback in baseball. Throw the medicine ball against the Plyoback and it bounces back to you. Seems simple, but you’re working your chest muscles (pecs), shoulders, back muscles (lats), core and abs while getting resistance from the weight of the ball. It's a fun way to exercise and very good for strength training. The Plyoback also converts to a mini-trampoline/rebounder.

Medicine Ball and Weight Control

Medicine Ball machines improve health and fitness, build muscle tissue, and develop a leaner body shape. They also help to raise metabolism and may also help to develop a flat stomach. To lose fat tissue, and reduce weight, workouts using Medicine Ball machines need to be combined with a calorie-controlled diet. Because unless you create a calorie deficit, you can't burn fat and therefore lose weight.
