Medicine ball or dumbbells? I love Cody's workouts. Should I purchase a medicine ball or just use dumbbells?
I went to purchase a medicine ball at a fitness store, and they didn't want to sell me one. They said that they weren't very useful, and tried to sell me a much more expensive set of dumbbells. I can see their point, and am wondering why Cody uses medicine balls instead of dumbbells? Which should I purchase for my workouts?chrisb53188 by:
I have done the workouts with both. On some moves, you can do a heavier medicine ball than dumbbell without straining or feeling awkward. So, the ball gives you more resistance per move. I don't see the need to purchase from fitness stores. You can find high quality dumb bells, medicine balls, and yoga mats at some of your high end discount chain stores.
