Exercise balls are essential if you plan on doing weight training and functional workouts.
The list of exercises you can do in the privacy of your own home or at the gym with exercise balls is endless. The best bit is, you don’t need a lot of space to get a full-body workout using exercise balls. We’ve outlined the differences between medicine balls, wall balls, slam balls and yoga balls below.
Medicine balls have the texture of a basketball and will bounce when dropped. Medicine balls come in a weight range of 1kg to 10kg and are used for functional sports movements, rehab exercises and core exercises like crunches.
Slam balls have a squishy texture and have no bounce when dropped. Slam balls come in a weight range between 3kg - 20kg and are designed for slamming exercises. They can also be used in place of free weights in exercises like lunges and squats.
Wall balls are designed for wall exercises. They are much softer and larger than slam balls or medicine balls and are safe to throw at walls. They can be used in exercises like wall throws, wall squats, and wall sit ups.
Physio balls, also called swiss balls, yoga balls and fit balls, are excellent for improving strength, coordination, stability and balance. They are the best exercise ball for rehabilitation, ab exercises and to use in pregnancy workouts.
