A solid punch ball
on 27 June 2014
I don't like jogging (it hurts my knees), and I'm not that sporty really, but I found that hitting an inanimate object (one that doesn't hit back) was both stress relieving and a good little cardio workout I could do at home. So, over the last few years I've owned a couple of different punch balls like this one. They were very similar, but what they had in common was the inflatable ball. Now, I don't know if I have the power of Mike Tyson hidden within my scrawny, and slightly feminine arms, but they would constantly deflate, and one even burst completely (a left hook did the trick). Also the pole upon which the ball is situated would constantly try to unscrew itself from the base...Alltogether unsatisfactory.
Then, one day, surfing through Amazon I came across the Maxstrength Punch Ball that I'm reviewing here, and seeing as it came with a solid ball which wouldn't deflate, and wasn't too expensive, I thought I'd give it a try.
Good decision! This by far the best punch ball speed thingy I've ever owned. The ball itself is SOLID, and takes a good old thwack (maybe not suitable for young kids who may hurt their hands...maybe), and the pole is firmy attached to the base with no signs of unscrewing itself. Just does the job perfectly.
Anyway, as my boxing skills have increased, I am losing weight, and am free of stress, I would say that this was one very healthy purchase that I am glad I made.
