3 Med. Balls

Re: 3 Med. Balls

Make them? Basketball + sand + plugs.

Else I would say get a 12 (or 10) and a 20, 3rd is up to you.

Re: 3 Med. Balls

I made 2 as mentioned above.
1 from a volleyball (12lb.)
and
1 from a basketball (25lb.)

I used and inner tube patch kit to seal them up and then gave them a few wraps of duct tape.

Definately function over fashion!!

Re: 3 Med. Balls

Randy,

I typically recommend my clients (www.againfaster.com*) purchase 10s, 14s, and 20s. The first is light enough for virtually anyone to handle, while the other two represent the CrossFit prescribed weights for women and men, respectively.

You'll have a lighter ball for partner throwing drills and two heavier balls for hip-driven thruster-type movements like wall ball.

Best,

Jon

Re: 3 Med. Balls

I ended up getting a 14 & 18 lbs. they were all out of 20 lbs., and I don't need it right away. I have a 10 lbs. leather everlast ball for partner tosses.
