The most significant difference between a slam ball and medicine ball is that a slam ball is designed for throwing exercises. It has a harder shell is made of a tough rubber-like PVC so it can handle a high-velocity impact against a hard surface. We make this same ball as a Cyclone Ball - with rope running through its center. This variety is used for swinging exercises.
Slam balls can be used for standard weight-lifting exercises in place of free weights and for dynamic exercises that involve an increased cardiovascular aspect. Slam balls are also effective for athletic training because they improve muscle mass, cardiovascular endurance and hand-eye coordination.
The most common exercise is a ball slam. Stand with feet shoulder width apart and lift the slam ball above your head while rising onto the balls of your feet. Throw the ball toward the ground a little bit in front of you to prevent the ball from bounding back in your face. Keep your arms relatively straight, and as you throw the ball, crunch your abs and bend your knees. You then catch or retrieve the ball and repeat the sequence. Concentrate on breathing in on the lift and out on the throw. The ball slam works your shoulders, triceps, abdominals, quads, glutes, calves and back. Repeating the exercise will increase your heart rate and burn more calories.
