20 lbs never felt so heavy 6/23/2013

The Gold's "Extreme" medicine ball seems well made. The synthetic leather grips the hands well. I just received it so no idea yet how durable it really is. The ball feels heavier than the barbell equivalent. I like this concentration of weight because there is enough resistance for bicep & tricep curls which I usually use a 40 lb bar for. I can also get a decent shoulder press workout. Squats and lunges are other ideal exercise applications. I thought to use it for leg curls (hams & quads) but too heavy for hams (lower back feels vulnerable when gripping ball between ankles). My fitness profile: male, 51, avg build, avg strength, previous weight lifting experience.
