On the FAQ thread, they recommend two 8-pound medicine balls.

The videos I've seen so far require a maximum of 4 balls. They use 2X8's and 2X12's, I think. Does anyone know where to get the ones they use in the video?

I use up to 4. The ones Tony used in the 1-on-1 series (and I think the variable sizes in the X2 videos) are the Valeo balls (http://www.amazon.com/Valeo-MB10-10-Pound-Medicine-Ball/dp/B0007IS73C/ref=sr_1_1?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1329263060&sr=1-1). I got the 4, 6,8, 10, & 12 along with a Champion Medicine Ball Rack (http://www.amazon.com/Champion-Sports-Medicine-Ball-Tree/dp/B0029VJOYG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1329264670&sr=8-1).

I make due with two. There are very few moves that use more than two. One of the moves that uses 3 I can't do because of a wrist issue. I wouldn't mind trying the 4 ball pushups, but I just can't see spending another $60 to do one move.

You can manage with 2 balls. If you want to challenge yourself further, then go for 4 med-balls. The 4-ball push-ups were a pain in the butt the first time I tried it, but I later was able to do 15-20.

BTW, those are done on the Chest+Back+Balance DVD. I suggest you watch it first because, for some reason, Tony explains how to do this exercise at the end of the move, instead of at the beginning of the move.
