  • Very short, rudimentary article and lacks depth and detail. One can do SO much with medicine balls, more than is indicated in this piece. The author could have provided more instruction and made a delineation between physical therapy training and fitness training. Half-baked article, not worth the read. - 3/9/2016 11:13:43 PM
  • Enjoyed the article! But probably won't add that to my fitness routine. - 10/3/2015 6:23:09 PM
  • Not certain I'm ready to try this one yet. . . - 7/30/2015 2:58:35 AM
    So how many people have chest passed the ball in there house at their wall? I am scared it will damage or mark up my wall???? - 1/19/2013 12:33:03 PM
  • My gym now has soft medicine balls. They are bigger but they have you throw them at the wall. I have a 6 pound ball at home would only throw it at the cement walls in the basement. I need to use it more. - 11/29/2012 1:10:40 PM
  • Great tip - 8/11/2012 7:05:04 AM
  • Good discussion of medicine ball use. I would love to see a video demonstration!! - 8/10/2012 2:25:17 PM
  • But from reading the posts a LOT of people seem to think a MEDICINE ball is the same thing as a (SWISS / PHYSIO ) ball it is NOT. Also I would be reluctant to throw a medicine ball against my walls!!! - 7/29/2012 5:10:06 PM

    Gotta get me a medicine ball! Looks like a great workout. - 1/27/2011 2:03:14 PM
    very resourceful to use medicine ball while doing activities unrelated, like computer work! - 1/27/2011 8:33:35 AM
  • I use one of the larger balls to sit on while I'm on the computer or watching tv ...great for balance and working your core - 10/16/2010 7:19:44 PM
    I use the medicine ball at the gym all the time. and I love it.
    Just went up and down a set of stairs 4 times holding a 15 lb. medicine ball above my head. - 6/5/2010 7:39:51 PM
  • Great article. I bought a 5 pound medicine ball and it came with a video. It is great and I am able to do most of the exercises with good form. My core needs a lot of work from neglect. The Russian Twist is torture though. LOL. - 10/17/2009 7:35:10 AM
  • I just bought me a medicine ball and am going to try it out. We will see how it goes! - 9/13/2009 3:49:55 PM
