I’m in my living room playing with my kettlebells and after I bang through the normal cleans, presses, snatches, swings, etc. I decide to do a little chest work. Normally this consists of some unilateral floor presses and some pullovers lying on the floor. Well, I decided to grab my swiss ball, since I was in the house and not outside and do some presses on the ball - obviously that was fine.
Well, then I decide to do some pullovers on the swiss ball. I get into the starting position and everything is fine and then I start to let the 36 lb kettlebell fall back and all of the sudden, I’m completely off balance. My feet leave the ground and I’m trying to get back into control and not let the kbell fall into my guitar or slam into the coffee table. I roll right off the ball while the bell bounces off me and falls to the ground barely missing my bookshelf.
Moral of the story - UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU EVER DO PULLOVERS ON A SWISS BALL !!!
