Survival of the Fittest Blog Archive Eric Cressey is Unbalanced
Part of me wants to print off that interview and leave it on the front desk at my gym so some of the trainers can realize what frauds they are.
great article thanks for posting
Edit: Damn Dirty Double.
i watched a guy going squats on one of the half balls with the flat top, it looked so dangerous.
You ain't kidding it looks dangerous. A while ago someone posted a picture of some guy squatting on a full Swiss ball with 135 pounds. Now, that was dangerous for him and the unlucky guy that was "spotting" him.
I think my ACL popped just readining that...
I wonder if these people ever think of risk-to-benefit ratios...
It's more like risk to risk ratios. There is not a benefit to be had from a strength perspective to doing squats on bosu balls.
It's not the potential for knee injury that scares me in that picture. It's the way his ankle is tweaked that just makes me cringe. You can't tell me he's not going to have some serious ankle issues later.
While impressive that anyone can balance on those overgrown implants- too dangerous!
I partially tore my acl in december and it's STILL not 100%, everything makes me worried about a knee injury
Yeah, that's what I mean. It's a GREAT:NONE ratio.
