Let’s get started!
Slam balls are effective for athletic training to improve muscle mass, cardiovascular endurance and hand-eye coordination. Slam balls are also a good complement to exercises like squats and deadlifts since they add resistance and strength to the existing exercise.
Start by using a lighter weight ball and work your way up as you become stronger and more comfortable with the techniques of using a slam ball. Posture is key in slam ball usage as you want to be sure that you are not leaning too far forward and placing stress on your back. The slam ball is designed to have the weight move around on the inside of the ball, as this instability helps aid in strengthening your core muscle group.
To enhance the longevity of your slam ball, try to slam away from the valve area. The valve is the most sensitive area of the slam ball and repeated hard slams can decrease the longevity of your ball. Store your slam ball in a cool, dry area and keep it out of extreme hot or cold.
