Introducing the Atlas Ball™
The Atlas Ball™ is a Fitness and Strength training device designed to increase coordination, skill, dexterity, agility, and power. It is a spherical shell that can be filled with any dense material that one desires. The end result is a heavy, solid-feeling ball, suitable for Crossfit, Strongman, or the everyday user. Reasonable options for filling include concrete, lead pellets, or sand. Its size should range from 10-20 inches in diameter with a weight of 30-200 lbs. I think the Atlas Ball™ would serve best with a shell feel that was soft enough, yet strong and durable. A textured pattern with squares covering the ball would probably be most effective.
The Atlas Ball™ is a combination of many different fitness tools. It was developed out of need for something that didnât exist. Most workout/medicine balls are either very light or, if filled with sand, they feature a weak bag like shell that gives it a floppy shape and not a solid feel. The Atlas Ball™ is heavy like an Atlas stone, grippy like a Medicine ball, robust like a Kettle bell, and supportive like a stability ball. The best part of the Atlas stone is the endless applications of a spherical object.
It is designed to be picked up, pressed, thrown, caught, ran with, laid on, rolled on, dropped, spun, juggled, and played with. The design affords one or many people to participate in its use. Games of strength can be fashioned, races can be had, or competitions can be created around the simplicity of the Atlas BallTM. I see the Atlas Ball™ in the hands of anyone looking to have fun and get strong.
