    I got a thread on this in P&M. Wonder what you guys think about this picture. I've done some Swiss ball exercises in rehab and they helped but trying to adapt everything for the ball is just foolhardy. It's like the bastardization of both the Swiss ball and the squat. It's like someone trying to come up with the most reliable way to get hurt in the gym.

    Yeah I've seen that picture around here before. Maybe in the "favorite idiot in the gym" thread. That's easily one of the stupidest things I've seen. I'd like to see the photo 10 seconds after this when he eats it.

    The reason squats on a swiss ball isn't more popular is because everyone who tries it dies.

    I love the fact that the dude in ChaseT's second video already has a broken arm. I wonder how that happened...

    WTF. I'm glad these guys are training for the swiss ball olympics, because that is the most useless shit I have ever seen.

    I never knew you could have so much fun with a swiss ball.

    Someone find the guy doing the one legged squats on a swiss ball.
