    Hey guys, I was looking into buying a medicine ball for various exercises. I was just curious, what weight medicine ball do you guys typically use for various exercises? 10lb? 12lb? etc...

    Thanks.

    your topic misleads me...

    I'd say go to a store and mess with some, feel the weight and decide for yourself.

    Depends what you want to use it for. If you are just doing push-ups, does the weight matter? I do medicine ball throws at my gym and the most important thing for that is to get a ball that does not bounce.
