Home-made Medicine Ball

Filling it with sugarThis is definitely on my list of things to make for the home gym. Inexpensive, comparatively simple to put together and multi-purpose. The Home-made Medicine Ball.

The one here has been constructed by All Around Strength's Jason Kirby, involving a couple of modifications to the method employed by both Jim Biancolo and Pierre Auge (instructions available via Mike's Gym).

Nice and simple. The next step - turning it into a Tornado ball. Looking forward to it.

Brilliant device. If your shoulders aren't quite as flexible as you'd like, grab The Rotater. Love it.
Already got one? Looking for something specific? Swing by the Straight to the Bar Store. It's all in there.

Of course, if you enjoyed these, I'd highly recommend grabbing the Strength & Fitness Newsletter. Delivered weekly, and absolutely free.

NB : If you'd like to write a guest post for Straight to the Bar, or if you'd like to join the team of Moderators here (I love hearing about everyone's training approaches) - get in touch. And if you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
