Is there a good sub for ball slams?
Liam Dougherty Springer 2009-02-10
When doing a heavy single where is a good weight to start at as far as %1rm, how gradualy should the weight be increased, and how much rest between attempts.
Joe Cavazos 2009-02-10

I often use a Squat into a Jumping Pull-up as a sub for Ball Slams. It's not perfect but I can't really think of a better alternative.
Matt Wichlinski 2009-02-10

Swing a sledge into a tire, or slam a sandbag, it might bust. Get an old DB and slam it into the grass, not perfect as the cycle slows cause you cant grab it off the bounce and continue the slams, but you can go hard as hell

Emily - Easiest thing is grabbing a single DB like you're going to swing it, and swing it down instead of up - basically just a reverse KB swing. With a DB.
Greg Everett 2009-02-10
Liam - Take whatever warm-up attempts you feel comfortable with. Keep the reps low, and decrease the size of the weight increases as you get closer to the heaviest lift of the day.
