wonder how much weight it takes to blow one of those swiss balls...

and thats a hell of a show in the first vid with what looks like... ~20lb dumbells?

Wow. I would love to see the video of the guy squatting. What the hell is that spotter going to do if that ball shoots from under him? Get more hurt that the guy "training". Yup.

that ball squat is deeply disturbing. Why would you put yourself in that position?! The look on his face is pretty sweet though.

i just want to see the ball shoot out from biceps curl guy.

I think that squat picture is a photoshop.

I wonder what people think doing curls on the swiss ball actually does for them that's worth getting ****ed up.

I've actually seen somebody do barbell squats on the ball. And while I don't think it's going to do anything I was impressed that the guy I saw got up by himself and do squats with 95lbs and dismount without hurting himself.

At one time I could stand on the ball and do bodyweight squats. I didn't do it for any other reason than to say I could.

I have to admit, if I was in the gym and saw a guy doing curls off a medicene ball, I'd be pretty darn tempted to walk by and punch a hole in the ball with some scissors

I just look at that and say to myself, "why?" Pure unadulterated boobery.

lmao being a curl jockey, he probably deserves to learn a lesson

OH WOW. Does that work your core???

The sad thing is this is not even the dumbest thing I have seen at the gym. At least it was worth a laugh.

Laffo. That was so lame. You would have thought the guy was preparing himself for a ME Squat or something...and then big let down - curls off of a swiss ball.

The photo of the guy squatting off the swiss ball is amusing. I'm sure it's a great way to throw your back out if the ball slips.

Also, how can that be good for your ankles? Look how tilted sideways they are on the ball. Have fun driving through your heels when they're tilted 45 degrees sideways.

i was laughing for about 10 minutes
