Reviews of AmazonBasics Medicine Ball

AmazonBasics Medicine Ball Review 1: Having a Ball

Medicine balls are a neglected part of the fitness experience. They are more commonly seen in rehabilitation centers than mainline gyms, and perhaps for that reason they carry the taint of remedial or soft workouts.

Yet, these balls offer a surprisingly tough and fatiguing upper body workout. A ten-pound ball – roughly the weight and size of a gallon of milk – is a great way to build on a strength and fitness program. Start with 100 partner throws (depending on speed of the chest-high catch and release, this may take 2 minutes), before moving up to a 5-minute continuous throwing workout. It’s an exercise that is both invigorating and eviscerating. The effort is so gradual and yet so cumulative; the fatigue sets in slowly, then all at once.

Because you are pushing against the weight of the ball, then launching it through the air (or letting go in passing drills), the workout is completely different from pumping iron or other fixed upper-body workouts like chin ups. The best comparison for me is training on a speed bag in boxing. I love medicine ball workouts. They take up little space and can be used in a variety of standing and floor positions in both solo and partner workouts. And honestly, working out with a ball – even a 10-pound one – is fun.

AmazonBasics brand medicine ball is a solidly crafted piece of equipment with two-tone coloring, a pebbly, rubberized basketball-sized grip, and dense feel. Highly recommend buying several sizes in this line for your home-based gym.

AmazonBasics Medicine Ball Review 2: Rock hard six pounder great for messing about.

Got my 6 pounder today. It’s hard in a good way. Perfectly silent, nothing sloshing about inside it. It’s pebbled like a basketball, but slipperier. It’s almost like it has something on it, like some wet finish to prevent it from cracking during storage and shipping from China. Actually wiped it down with a clean paper towel and some gunk cane off it.

I own a 12 pounder with handles, which is necessary to do more with the ball at that weight or higher; I’d never buy a 12 pounder or more without those two molded in handles. But, I wanted this little sucker to just toss around, hand to hand, while I watch football. The eight pounder was a touch too heavy when I tested it at a big box store. Six is just right. Difficult to describe the size, but much bigger than a traditional fast pitch softball, slightly bigger than a 16 inch slow pitch, gloveless Chicago (city) style softball, definitely smaller than a Brunswick ten pin bowling ball.

I like this little baby for tossing up and catching and horsing around on my couch. You might, too. Oh, the stink that everyone mentions? Yep, it stinks like rubber. Bad. Hope it stops after a bit. Oh, and it shipped in a square cube box, and wrapped in clear bag.

AmazonBasics Medicine Ball Review 3: High Quality, Multi-Purpose, Home-Gym Essential

Amazon is – of course – a brand I’ve grown to trust and appreciate; this is the first time I’ve purchased anything from the AmazonBasics line. I’m very happy with the make, style, and quality of this medicine ball. I like that this is one in a set of color-coded medicine balls in varying weights, so I can add to my collection as I like.

The ball is built with material and texture similar to that of a basketball – a very small, lightly raised, rubberized pattern lays across the surface for traction/grip… which is an absolutely wonderful feature. The 8-pounder is about the size of a futsal (indoor soccer) ball and is actually helpful to use in building up power in your ankles and in your ball-kicking force if you play soccer. I not only use this medicine ball for ab exercises and HIIT movements (like “wood chops”) but for increasing the strength and power in my ankles by gently, but purposefully, pushing it around the floor with my instep.
