5. Dynamax Ball
Often called “Dynamax balls” after the brand that popularized them, these vinyl-wrapped 14” medicine balls are about as versatile as it gets. [Dynamax also makes a “mini,” which is 10″.] Durable, easy to handle, and relatively soft so they absorb impact well, they’re great tools for explosive plyometric work like throws, slams, and wall tosses, as well as a good way to introduce instability into common exercises like pushups or planks—set your feet on one and be ready to feel the burn in your abs. And because they have far less bounce than hard rubberized medicine balls, they’re easier to toss around and against the wall without worrying about it punching a hole in the sheetrock.
