Exercise & Gym BenchesThe cornerstone of a solid strength workout is a good, sturdy exercise bench, allowing for a variety of focused and compound strength exercises, and adjustments for every type of user. A weight bench is a simple yet endlessly useful tool when putting together a home gym, especially when you’re trying to save space. Choose between the sturdiness of a flat gym bench, or the diversity of an adjustable exercise bench for maximum utility.
Exercise Benches FAQ
Overhead Slams: (Abdominals, triceps, shoulders, back, calves)
With your feet shoulder width apart, hold the slam ball on either side with palms facing in. Bring the ball up above head before throwing the ball down to the ground.
Overhead Toss (Abdominals, triceps, calves, pecs)
Again, hold the slam ball on either side. Bend your knees into a small squat, and bring the ball in between your legs. Shoot up by straightening your legs and torso as you throw the ball up clean overhead. Throw it so the ball lands in front of you.
Russian Twists (Obliques, abdominals)
Sit on the floor, holding a medicine ball with both hands up close to your chest. Raise your feet up off the ground, keeping yourself upright by bracing your core. Then, begin rotating the slam ball from side to side, rotating the torso with the slam ball.
Starting from 6kg in weight, CORTEX sells a selection of 10kg slam balls, 15kg slam balls up to 30kg slam balls. Using heavier weights for your slam ball workout will be better suited to focused strength training and muscle building. Lighter weights are great for incorporated cardio workouts, while also developing functional strength. It’s important to start slow with slam ball, especially if you’re new to them, and get a feel for how your body responds to them. From there, choose a weight that provides an adequate level of resistance and work for your muscles, as well as deciding what area of fitness you want to focus on.

The key difference between slam balls and medicine balls is that the latter is not designed to be bounced or slammed. Medicine balls are better suited to lifting or holding rather than throwing around. Slam balls are designed to fall dead without a bounce, making them safe and convenient for throwing and slamming exercises.
