Slam balls are a highly functional and effective piece of equipment that can be used to complete a full body workout in the comfort of your own home.
Usually, exercises with slam balls are highly explosive and help to increase power, stamina and speed. The traditional overhead slam in it’s simplest term involves the athlete picking up the ball from the ground, raising it overhead and slamming to the ground. Sounds easy enough right? Well after a few of these you might not think so. This exercise will work the shoulders, triceps, biceps, core and legs, giving you a full head to toe workout. The benefit of a slam ball is that they can easily be incorporated to enhance other exercise to work many muscle groups like squats, lunges, press ups, burpees.
As the name suggests it is a ball, however it won’t bounce like an ordinary ball. They are covered in an easy to grip, heavy duty durable rubber meaning no matter how hard they are slammed, they will not burst open and will not damage the floor, so can be used virtually anywhere at home whether it’s the living room, back garden or garage.
