Wall-balls are gift and a curse. However, the end result of performing this movement is a massive increase squatting ability, stamina, cardiorespiratory capacity—you name it. The bottom line is that wall-balls are a great exercise.
Upon realizing this truth a few months ago, I decided to buy a medicine ball online.
“Yeah, I’m a broke college student, but this is my fitness we’re talking about, right? I can fit this cost into my budget.”
That foolish thought floated around inside my head for about 30 seconds—the time it took for me to realize that one med-ball costs about as much as 10-15 meals. If you’ve got the money, then by all means make the purchase. If you’d rather spend under $20 and get a sweet piece of homemade gear, then read on.
