Slam balls are non-bounce weighted balls designed for high-impact, explosive exercises – exercises that mostly involve slamming them into the ground!
Typically made from high-quality rubber, slam balls have a durable outer shell that can withstand heavy impact and rough handling. This is the main slam ball vs medicine ball differentiator: medicine balls aren’t suitable for slamming.
Available in a range of weights – ours are 3–15kg – slam balls are suitable for different fitness levels as well as different exercise programmes, including strength training, plyometric exercises and high-intensity interval training (HIIT).
Adding the weight of a slam ball to a movement certainly provides an intense workout for the entire body: arms and core, back and lower body. They’re a popular choice for athletes and fitness enthusiasts who want to improve their explosive power and build total body strength.
Slam ball exercises can be carried out in various settings, from commercial and home gyms to back gardens. Their non-bouncing design allows you to perform explosive movements safely, without worrying about the ball bouncing back and causing injury. Additionally, our balls feature a raised rubber texture that helps maintain a tight grip.
Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced athlete, slam balls are a great addition to any fitness programme – a versatile and effective training tool that can be used in a range of settings to improve strength, power and explosiveness.
