I LOVE THEM! My Homemade Medicine balls =-)
They are super easy to make and work great!
I have one 8 lb ball I bought and it wasn't cheap. I have been wanting more but really didn't want to pay the price. I noticed I had 7 deflated basketballs and footballs in my garage for years and decided to make medicine balls out of them. They woks GREAT!
Check my blog for pics. SP couldn't handle the size.
These only cost me $6 for two 50 lb sandbags. I already had a shoe repair tube.
What you need
Sand bag - $3 each at any home store
Rubber tubed sealant - for shoes, tires, or anything rubber. Used it to fill the whole.
From left to right
4 lbs football, 8 lbs football, 10 lbs, 12 lbs , 15 lbs, 20 lbs, and 22.4 lbs.
I plan on making an 18 pound once I get anther ball.
1. I punched out the rubber seal where you pump in the air.
2. Fill the sand in the whole with a funnel. This is going to take a while.
3. Fill the whole with rubber sealant. Let it sit, usually the sealant takes 24 hours to dry.
THAT EASY! Look out Top Body - Fitness clients even more wall balls and over head squats.
