    AndyWeaver: Ged, you have definitely been an inspiration. Would have been happy with 100 had you not kept posting big numbers.
    GedMustoNumber1: Andy, you are one true machine...you said about mine being outstanding, yours is mind blowing, tremendous effort and I am pleased that I have pushed you on to new heights, hope I have been an inspiration to you my friend..My arms are still raw after
    AndyWeaver: Funny that in the photo it looks like the medicine ball is being thrown at your head and you are trying to block it with your hands.
    AndyWeaver: Thanks Ged, dont know how I managed the last 20, each one I thought would be my last. Had 101 as my goal and somehow managed it. This is pretty much my limit I believe.
    GedMustoNumber1: Great job as usual Andy,well impressed, thought your arms were going to drop off from 60 onwards, the hands were a lot closer towards the end and I would have done the same, may have to try that if I decide to go through that sheer hell again..my phy
    AndyWeaver: Good job. You were still going strong if you hadnt dropped it. The hadle will take a bit of stress off the squeezing of the forearm but then again it will definitely make it harder for the blind transfer behind the back. Tough to drop it when you
    GedMustoNumber1: Hi Andy, just tried the challenge...6kg double handled ball which in a way made it harder, couldnt get a decent grip, ball fell out of my hands when I hit 34...Will try again, great exercise and it sure worked on the wrists..arms still dead after the
    AndyWeaver: Sure Ged give it a try. The heavier the medicine ball the higher your score. The handles will make it somewhat different but this is one of those exercises that people will have to improvise as most wont have the medicine ball I have.
    GedMustoNumber1: WOW!!!...Huge well done..What a damn good challenge And, totally agree with you that must be damn hard on the wrists..Would love to try that but have a double handled medicine ball weighing 6kgs, can this still count? Can you let me know...

Here's what you need to do to take part:

Take a medicine ball roughly the size of a bowling ball (mine was 12 pounds or about 5 kilo) palm it from the top and swing it around your body switching hands in the front and rear as you circle. The goal is to keep a steady rythim while keeping your hand on top or the side, not the bottom of the ball. It's tough to keep the grip as you keep going. I will adjust score for body weight and medicine ball weight.

Good luck and have fun. It's good for grip, core and lots of ancillary muscles.
