Sooo here I am getting all nice a lean so I decide I really really need to incorporate a Core Training day into my regimin. So today was that day, I decided after doing my cardio I would hit abs, obliques, and lowerback to help strengthen a tone my core.

So after hitting a slew of core exercises I decide I will finish it all out with some ab crunhes on the ab ball. Now remember I'm VERY VERY VERY top heavy. And yes we do have an Ab ball that is rated at like 400 pounds so no it did not pop.

But as I make my way through the movements I'm trying very very hard to stay stable. Well on the 3rd set and 15th rep as I'm coming up for some God forsaken reason I look to my right. Well that is all it took. Over my big ass went right to the damn floor. Landed right no my ass, so I rolled over to my knees real fast and looked around to see if anyone was looking.

Well sure enough here was this little old lady just smiling and laughing at my big ass looking like a big goof.

So guess my happy ass wont be getting on anymore damn Ab balls anytime soon :)

Has something like this happened to anyone else, any embarrasing stories from the gym you would like to share so I dont feel so damn dumb today :)

Nope my mom is on the hopsital has to have Open Heart surgery this week. She has been in there for a week now and she is staying confident but I know she is scared ****less!!!

She has a Heart Cath tomorrow and def needs a valve replaced and they are gonna use a laser to carve down the enlarged part of her heart. Plus if they find any blockage they will have to do a bypass.

My Real Dad died in the hospital after having heart surgery sooo this is kind of messing with me right now. But I got my spirits high and will take it one day at a time. There is really nothing at this point in time I can do it is out of my hands and in theirs.

A friend of mine (48) just had a valve replaced less than 2 weeks ago and he's back at work!!! Light duty of course but he's back. Not sure how long ago your dad's surgery was but technology & technique has advanced so much. I'm sure your mom will do great and in a few weeks she'll be/feel healthier and happier than ever...

Wow, I will say a prayer for your mom and you Mike.


On the ab ball thing, ask Travis about my attempts on one tossing a medicine ball with Justin at Westside. Lol, I must have fallen off 10 days and even smacked my elbow on the a Tred Sled or something one of the times...

what?

He asked for other dumb stories... well I was pulling my car with my new APT pulling harness in training for my next contest, and I came too upright, slipped, and fell flat on my face... there were kids and parents around for some youth leg soccer club, so if that's not more embarassing than falling off a swiss ball then I don't know what is.

Yea I let out a nice little laugh, in fact the girl was laughing as she was clearing the room lol, it was actually a good ice breaker for us. We talk regularly now. And I will keep your mother in my prayers Mike.
