Can't beat my Barack Obama wall-ball / slam-ball

Ball - $5.99 @ K-Mart (tried unsuccessfully to find a free, used one)
Play Sand - $3.50 @ Lowe's (50 lbs - enough for two balls. Also used to retain shape of homemade Oly rings while heating)
Rubber patch kit - $3.50 @ Harbor Freight Tools

This one's exactly 20 lbs. Feels very sturdy (I'll update after "Karen") and well balanced. I'll be making the wife a 16 lb or 14 lb in the near future. If only there were a way to make bumper plates and barbells at home, right?

Either side of the isle can be happy with that ball. Your either stoked because you have a Barack Obama ball, or because you get to make it eat pavement. Everybody is a winner!

I know, right?

Rick... I have a friend who goes to CrossFit Gainesville. His name is Rick Long. Do you know him? We went to UF together (online) for our Bachelor's in Business.

Re: Can't beat my Barack Obama wall-ball / slam-ball

For the record...

Barack O-balla held up very well to Karen. Hard to believe that 1" x 1" tire patch held up so well using just the rubber cement.

Can I blame my slow time on the CrossFitter before me? I know some presidents have done this with previous presidents and I wanted to keep in the spirit, since I'm using a ball with a president on it.

Or how you'll finish Karen in half the time, then do part of everyone else's wall-balls too...
