NonBouncing Plyoball medicine balls
are great in pass/catch situations, because they have a textured grip,
they are less apt to slip, and are soft on the fingers. Although called
NonBounce, they are actually semi-bounceable. Thus they can be used solo
against a wall. You just stand a little closer - 3 ft as opposed to 10+
feet away. The feeling is more of smacking the ball against the wall really
hard, as opposed to a more gentle lob necessary with a bouncing ball. In
such uses, many people feel that more explosive energy is recruited with
a nonbounce ball. Of course, in non-tossing exercises such as giant circles
or russian twists it doesn't matter what kind of ball you use. Non bounce
Plyoballs are filled with a dry sand/air mixture. Softness can be adjusted
by adding air or letting it out. These features make NonBounce Plyoballs
the favorite choice of experienced users.
Bouncing balls are used in bounce
pass/catch exercises with a partner or against a wall solo. Some tennis
teachers like to play actual points on court with bouncing balls. Bouncing
balls bounce because they are constructed of several inches-thick rubber.
As a result, they have a hard feel. You have to exercise a some caution
in pass/catch drills because you can injure your fingers or even break
your nose if a ball thrown toward your face slips through your hands. Bouncing
balls do not need to be inflated.
