Industrial Athletic Slam Balls
What is it?
Industrial Athletic Dead Ball is designed specifically for those workouts that will require a ball to be dropped thrown and slammed. Regular medicine balls have failings when it comes to these uses, but its all about the right tool for the job. Industrial Athletic Dead Balls are constructed with an ultra-durable, heavy-duty rubber shell, and filled with a fine black sand for fluid movement and instability. A rough textured surface allows for a high quality grip even when wet, and the black color is just for the cool factor. Each slam ball comes equipped with an air valve making it possible to adjust the air capacity and overall firmness, and also acts as a safety feature to assist in dampening the blow.
What’s its best use?
Industrial Athletic Dead Balls should be the weapon of choice for any of your explosive workouts, that involve the throwing, dropping, or slamming of an object to the ground, or wall etc. As the technology has grown, and we have utilised it for creating larger and larger options of Dead Balls, we are now seeing these as a very popular alternative to Atlas stones. Safely go for a max lift, without the fear of splitting a toe!
Best Practice Guide
Two things that must be considered for by an owner of Industrial Athletic Slam Balls
1. Slam balls should be topped up with air regularly. If they are not, then the pressure on the valve (weak spot) is immense, and can cause failure.
2. The sand can inside the Slam Balls does settle, and become hard, like rock. Slamming a compacted and/or cold ball on the ground, can cause a rupture.Slam balls always need to be warmed up before use. This is best achieved by rolling the ball, on the ground until the sand feels fluid again, and the balls feels warm.
