The right choice of weight - how heavy should the Dynamax medicine ball be?
Weight is often equated with strength. This sometimes leads to the wrong tendency to think that "heavy is better". But the right key to Dynamax medical ball training is to choose the right weight. The weight of the Dynamax medical ball must be chosen so that both the speed of execution and the quality of the movements are at a high level.
The "light" Dynamax medicine balls with 4, 6 and 8 pounds are suitable for every athlete. Even if the weight is not high, you can increase the speed of the exercise with increasing strength, power and performance. Dynamax medicine balls and the associated Dynamax training with higher weight are suitable for Dynamax strength training, which requires slow and more powerful exercises.
How can I train with Dynamax medicine balls?
A few examples of Dynamax exercises
- Breast pass (partner exercise):
The partner brings the Dynamax medicine ball into the outstretched arms of the other athlete. The ball is taken to the chest by taking a step back and leaning back a little. Now the athlete leans forward and starts a throwing action.
- Isolated chest pass, sitting (partner exercise):
The partner stands with shoulder-wide feet and the sitting partner turns his legs outwards to "hang" the feet behind the partner. Now the seated athlete leans back and leads the Dynamax to the chest, then the medicine ball is thrown back explosively.
- Underhand throw on the wall (single exercise):
The athlete begins with a view of a wall, the Dynamax medicine ball is located on the side at hip height. The movement is started by moving the hips backwards and bending the knees and ankles. A powerful movement stretches the hips, ankles and knees, and the Dynamax Ball is thrown against the wall in a one-sided underhand throw. The ball is caught and the exercise is performed on the other side of the body.
