I want to buy a medicine ball to use at the track for DeFranco like sprinting drills.
For those that don't know what Im talking about: the drills involve throwing the ball explosively followed by a 20 meter sprint. Its meant to help with developing explosiveness and promote the proper forward lean while sprinting.
I would also like to use the ball for explosive throws as well, such as overhead throws etc.
I am wondering what weight medicine ball would suit best? I was thinking somewhere between 5-8 kg's?
Any help/advice would be appreciated.
