What Muscles Are Medicine Ball Slams Good For?

D-Ball OH Slam

D-Ball Rainbow Slam


Ideally, you’ll want to use a Dynamax D-Ball as it is built to handle stronger, explosive overhead throws on any surface. When you throw a Dynamax D-ball ball, it will have limited bounce, no matter how fast the velocity or how hard the impact. This forces the athlete to retrieve the ball in a squat pattern, which engages the posterior chain on the way up, making it a true total-body exercise.

By incorporating a variety of drills and exercises, you can engage the following muscles by performing ball slams:

  • Shoulders
  • Lats
  • Triceps
  • Pecs
  • Calves
  • Back
  • Glutes
  • Hamstrings
  • Quadriceps
  • Calves
  • Core

Due to the higher intensity and impact of the movements, you can build muscle that little bit faster.
