This is my second medicine ball and I’ve taken more progress pictures this time. Attempt one can be found here.
This ball is going to be turned into a tornado ball for rotation strength, slams and whatever else I decide to use it for. I asked Matthew Palfrey from sandbag fitness what the best weight for a tornado ball is and he suggested 5Kg – 8Kg depending on strength level. This ball ended up being 9Kg since is felt kind of empty at 8Kg so I filled it up a bit more.
This time around I decided to keep the valve so that I can pump the ball up, so I drilled a hole just off to the side of the valve where the rubber is thicker.
The sand I got was also dryer this time, so at the start it filled up a lot easier than last time.
Once the ball had started to fill up I had to start using a stick to push the sand in again since the sand still wasn’t super dry (its winter right now so everything is wet).
