Using Non-bouncing Medicine Balls

Using Non-Bouncing Medicine Balls
by Mike Boyle

I love the Dynamax medicine balls but I can't say I always did. About 10 years ago I bought some heavy Dynamax balls to do upper body plyometrics with. Primarily we did medicine ball bench presses. We have one partner drop an 18-20 lb ball and the other athlete throws the ball back. I really like this exercise for upper body power because it does not give the shoulders the stress that exercises like plyometric pushups do. The reason we use the Dynamax balls is that they are softer and easier to handle when dropped.
