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.

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!!!

very resourceful to use medicine ball while doing activities unrelated, like computer work!

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

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.

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.

good article. I am afraid that I would damage the wall. Not because I am strong lol, but because I was always told never to throw anything heavier than a tennis ball.

I would love to see an article (linked to this?) about what size of medicine ball to buy! Until I actually start doing the exercises with one, that might be the only way to see??? If anybody knows, let me in on the secret!
