Sorry if I´m about to ask a silly question, but hey, better to ask. So I´ve started working on my mobility and flexibility. I´ve done the first three episodes, and now Kstar has warned me I need three lacrosse balls and a jump stretch band. Unfortunately, I live in Spain and lacrosse balls, well…impossible. All I can find is ones made out of PVC, so pretty much solid. Anyway, I´m thinking of steeling my dog´s toy, a Kong ball. A solid rubber ball about 2.5 – 3 inches across. Will that work?
Yup. No need to overcomplicate it.
A tennis ball is also a good alternative although obviously won’t provide as much pressure as a lacrosse ball.
You can use a field hockey ball or a softball
A jai-alai ball?
Another great alternative is a hibounce Pinky balls. They are oddly similar to the yoga tuneup balls
You can use a tennis ball or put 2 tennis balls in a sock and tie the end.
Thanks for all the replies! I just ordered 3 lacrosse balls from an online store. It´ll take about a week for them to get here, and in the meantime I´ll go ahead and use tennisballs.
