    Default Medicine ball : What weight should I choose ?

    Dear badmintoncentral members,

    I have a question regarding the medicine balls.
    Indeed I broke mine (it torns appart) last week and I would like to get a new one.

    In a shop in my town I got the choice between a 2kg (4lbs) ball and 3kg (6lbs) ball.

    I would like to know which one you would advice to me, considering I mainly practise pliometry with a medicine ball. (Also some other exercises but this is less frequent)

    Any suggestions ?

    Thank you all for your help

    It really depends on your specific needs. How strong are you? What do you use it for - rate of force development training, warm-up or conditioning? Keep in mind that there aren't any pliometric exercises with medicine balls that are particularly specific to badminton.
