Medicine Balls provide a great alternative to the standard free weights and resistance bands many of us own and use for strength training at home. Not only do medicine balls provide us with a larger range of motion compared to other workout equipment, but they also provide us with greater dynamic flexibility. Depending on the weight you choose, medicine balls can be an inexpensive addition to your at home workout equipment while providing you with variety to help keep your workouts fresh, therefore making them a great supplement to your strength training routine.
