Did you know that Medicine Balls are one of the most ancient pieces of athletic equipment? It dates back to 1000BC. It was used by athletes in Ancient Greece.
If you are looking to increase your core and overall strength, coordination, balance and endurance adding a medicine ball to your workouts can target all of these.
Medicine balls are an inexpensive piece of home/gym equipment that is highly recommended and that can be used in many different variations and movements.. The medicine ball is basically a weighted ball about the size of a basketball that comes in various weights ranging from 2lbs to 25lbs or more which makes it suitable for all levels of fitness and as you continue to build your strength.
From core, to upper body, to legs-the medicine ball is probably one of the most convenient, versatile workout equipment that allows you to get a great full body workout while strengthening and conditioning. Best part is, you can take them anywhere with you, making it great for traveling workouts!
