26 lb wall ball

Yeah, so a long time ago (back when I started CF), someone recommended to take a basketball and fill it with sand, then duct tape it to keep it together, and it'd be around 17 or 18 lbs. It worked fine, and is still together, but just the other day I finally went and weighed it, and that puppy is stinking 26 lbs!!!

So all this time I've been doing wall ball with a 26 lb wall ball, no wonder I hated it so much.

Dude!
26# wall ball would definitely suck - and leave a mark!

Re: 26 lb wall ball

Yeah no kidding, I did find that out, when I was using my old cap barbell bar for starting strength, then got my Pendlay Economy bar in the mail, I went from a 39 lb bar to a 44 lb bar and was wondering why my shoulder press went backwards...

Now I have a cheap ($0.93 + $17 shipping on eBay, heh) 75 lb scale for measuring everything in the gym. On the lighter stuff, I'll weigh everything on one side for the first time I do the workout, then just record which weights I used, so I KNOW I'm really going up only 2 lbs per workout, and not up like 5 (which has happened with changing plates, I've got two 25 lb iron plates that are like 26 lbs 10 oz and 27 lbs 2 oz... brilliant
