Quick question about my balls.
I've got three at the moment. One inflatable ball that I keep at the office and haven't used in forever, one that I have at home and use very sporadically to toss around, and one from a set of those little Chinese exercise balls used for relaxation. Balls are truly amazing things, and I feel like I am under-utilizing mine. How do you use balls? Do you exercise with medicine balls? De-stress by tossing one against the wall, like House MD? Anything I'm missing from the wide world of balls?
And on a very distantly related note, do you ever form random foods into balls? Like rice balls, ground liver balls, coconut balls, dark chocolate balls, etc etc?

I've always been told that the balls should not be neglected, although it's easy to forget to play with them when distracted by other activities. But I know that playing with balls develops joint strength, while also increasing power, and especially speed. But that increase in speed sometimes comes at a cost to the snatch, which should not be rushed but done in a smooth, continuous motion.
Since I don't have balls of my own, but use my husband's instead, I confess I don't know the effect of ball play on the clean & jerk, but perhaps some of the power lifters here with balls of their own can chime in on that.
I generally just play with my balls. I mean what good are balls if u can't play with them

PUFAs have been know to thwart the ancestral condition of strong ball skills. Problems with transcription factors involved in ATP synthetase pathways and mitochondrial telomere density fructose sometimes inhibit reward motivating tendencies. In short, this report has been about Brazil.
How fortuitous that this question is posted as I just happened to be playing with balls since early this morning! A wide variety of shapes and sizes for my choosing, it was just a matter of selection.
I definitely warmed up with small so there wouldn't be any range of motion issues and then it was just making sure my hands weren't too cold to handle the next size, didn't want to have any problems establishing contact. I decided that about a 30% increase from last time sounded about right to effectively work my arms, core, legs, and back.
It's truly amazing what balls can do for someone, they really provide an outstanding dimension of functional training that will prepare the body for movements made in everyday life.
Basically I'm just an equal opportunity ball handler. Lacrosse, Slam, Medicine, Nut, Yaki Onigiri.
I've been thinking about getting rid of my front door so that I can roll a giant stone ball in front of the opening like our paleo ancestors probably did (according to cartoons.)
Ball tip: I recently learned of a woman who was able to unlearn her southern accent by keeping her mouth filled with marbles when she spoke.
Balls. Balls. Balls.
All the live long day it's balls in my life.
Yoga/Swiss balls. I've got two. Bought them whilst prego and needing a place to sit that didn't make my butt hurt like hell. It worked. Also they were great for bouncing on while in labor. Now, I just throw them at my 22 month old. He loves it.
I have a medicine ball but it's too heavy for me to throw. But it's so nice and solid that I've started using it for thoracic mobilization stuff. Also rolling on it along my IT band makes me want to scream, but works the kinks out like a charm.
I use tennis balls for muscle release. Use one of those on your piriformis or your quadratus lumborum and you'll be screaming for your mommy!:)
Finally the good ol' golf ball. So small, but so hard. Great for foot massage. Step on one and roll it around your foot for a while. You can write me a check for that advice once you awaken from your blissful stupor!
Balls. I love 'em. I use 'em. You could say I am a ball a·fi·ci·o·na·do!
As a male, I never like to see the word "hack" and "balls" used in the same sentence. The image is painful.
Balls are great in a massage context. I use a lacrosse ball for my plantar fascia, for example. Perhaps a mouth-sized ball, like a golf ball, could be used as a snack-avoidance mechanism. Even though I live in Switzerland, I haven't got myself any Swiss balls yet. My husband's American set is still in great shape.
There's a reason nature does not make soap bubbles shaped like a cube. A sphere is smooth, strong, and challenging. It can keep rolling, even when kicked. Just be careful not to deflate your balls and they'll serve you well for many years. Last but not least, let us not forget the Hairy Ball Theorem from Algebraic Topology!
