Ive seen in various MMA training routines the fighters swinging a foam ball with a rope through it on to the back wall behind them whilst sitting facing the other way. I suppose this is for cardio as well as strengthening of the core. Is it for anything else ? And does the ball and rope have a particular name as i cant find it anywhere on the net and would like to use it in a boxercise class i run. I may have to resort to making one !
i think there called tornado balls...i found a website on the internet called 'rosstraining.com' with some information on how to make one...i have made one myself and found it is a very effectively tool for conditioning and training the rotational strength, that lots of fighter lack nowerdays...by the way heres the link: http://www.rosstraining.com/customizedmedicineball.pdf
by the way i would reccomend looking at the rest of teh website as it is has lots of useful information
Get a large stick or pipe, and hold it in the middle and rotate it,or naruto gamesyou can do abanicos (fan strikes and stuff). Try to work on speed instead of strength, and your wrists getspiritual poems stringer and more flexible over time.
I got my tornado ball from jordan freeweights and they come in different weights just like normal medicine balls. They are good for core training, rotational strength and endurance and explosive power.
