7 Reasons Why CrossFit Athletes Hate Wall Balls

Thrusters, push presses and wall balls could all possibly fit into the same category: metabolic, mental conditioning! Here are seven reasons why we don’t always like them.

1. From Beginners to Pros: no one can escape them.

The task: goblet squat combined with a push/throw of the ball up to the target.


Wall balls are a simple and efficient way to train the fundamentals of movement later used for weightlifting. You don’t need advanced skills to use them as metabolic conditioning exercise to spice up your workout. Which means no one is immune to them. There’s not a single “I am beginner” excuse that could be valid to use. They are a safe and efficient way to burn out your hands first, followed by legs the very next day – whole body movement.
