Slam Balls are a type of weighted exercise ball used for resistance and conditioning exercises. They’re designed with hard, durable shells that are able to withstand strong pounding and intense slamming. The main function of a slam ball is to minimise bounce back when thrown to the ground, leaving you free to accelerate your workout without having to worry about your equipment.
Slam Balls FAQ
Overhead Slams: (Abdominals, triceps, shoulders, back, calves)
With your feet shoulder width apart, hold the slam ball on either side with palms facing in. Bring the ball up above head before throwing the ball down to the ground.
Overhead Toss (Abdominals, triceps, calves, pecs)
Again, hold the slam ball on either side. Bend your knees into a small squat, and bring the ball in between your legs. Shoot up by straightening your legs and torso as you throw the ball up clean overhead. Throw it so the ball lands in front of you.
Russian Twists (Obliques, abdominals)
Sit on the floor, holding a medicine ball with both hands up close to your chest. Raise your feet up off the ground, keeping yourself upright by bracing your core. Then, begin rotating the slam ball from side to side, rotating the torso with the slam ball.

It’s important to start slow with slam ball, especially if you’re new to them, and get a feel for how your body responds to them.

The key difference between slam balls and medicine balls is that the latter is not designed to be bounced or slammed. Medicine balls are better suited to lifting or holding rather than throwing around. Slam balls are designed to fall dead without a bounce, making them safe and convenient for throwing and slamming exercises.
