THE BEST Swiss Ball workout EVER!!!

Many people have been running around the board toting that they can do squats on a Swiss Ball. They also run around saying that it works the “core” muscles. Usually, this talk is accompanied by an attitude that shouts “I’m hot shit!” My response to these poindexters is this, you want a real workout that absolutely FRIES those itsy-bitsy core muscles which we don’t even have names for except “core muscles?” Well then, this is my exercise…

First, you start off with a Swiss Ball (naturally).

Next get a barbell and load that mother fucker up good with like 200 lbs. We’re not really going for form here, just heaving the weight around.

Now, bitch, strap on your rollerblades and lets workout!!

Swiss Ball + Barbell w/ lots of weights + Rollerblades =

THE ROLLER DERBY SWISS BALLEY SQUAT!!! MOTHER FUCKER!!

Now that, boys and girls, is what I call a MAN’S exercise.

I don’t get it.

LOL, I’m envisioning this right now…

LOL
Unfortunately I just saw a trainer at 24hr Fagness doing something similar.

Real funny, your ignorance shines through. I’m sure you havent done any research on the subject. Just some mediocre trainee who wants some one to hear his useless opinion.

if ignorance is bliss then Chris is the gayest dude on this forum 

Dude, your 5’10 140 working out for two years and your handing out advice. Lets get real!! What the heck do you know about anything.

Damn, bro, it was just a joke, don’t get your panties in a wad

Lol:}
In my humble opinion,the swiss ball is a piece of rehab kit which has been hijacked by the mainstream Personal Trainers,and as such leaves those who use it open to derision.
Sure it may have benefits for us T-folks because we Squat,deadlift etc etc but the general public? the trainers use them as a gimmick in place of the real exercises,and as such they are cheating the client.
I do not use it,but would not knock any of you T-folk who do.

Holy shit, I cannot believe you guys thought I was actually serious. I tried laying the sarcasm down real heavy in that one…I guess I didn’t lay it down heavy enough.

You seriously thought that I was promoting a workout that is already dangerous (Swiss Ball squat) and making it 1,000% more dangerous by adding fucking rollerblades?!? Thats a chuckler.

Why do we even need weights anymore when we have the swiss ball?

Here’s a great swiss ball trick that will leave your friends amazed!

Stand on your head on top of a swiss ball and then drink a protein shake down while your still inverted.

The protein will be utilized much more efficiently and you will gain 20 pounds of lean muscle in as little as 3 weeks!

Invisible: Wow. And you’re the guy accusing someone of ignorance. What a clever one you are.

Lemme guess… you’re somewhere around 16 years old, live in your parents basement?

Only one person put up a pic doing a swiss ball squat.

Well DAVE, I hope my resume is good enough for yourself. I am 6’2 230 and play college football. Clean close to 400 lbs, and run a 4.67. I’m the type of cat you really dont want to see on the feild. But I dont need to tell yourself anything you probably no it all being 180 with 10% bodyfat, I can picture you now

fitone, its true that only one person put up a pic while doing squats on a Swiss Ball, but if you remember correctly, you’d remember that other people in that post said that they do squats on Swiss Balls and that its great. I apologize for exaggerating too much. Howbout I say it this way, many people, not necessarily on the board, have been running around toting that they can do squats while on a Swiss Ball like they’re hot shit.

“Well DAVE, I hope my resume is good enough for yourself. I am 6’2 230 and play college football. Clean close to 400 lbs, and run a 4.67. I’m the type of cat you really dont want to see on the feild.

Dude, invisible, anybody that feels the need to post their “resume” on an internet message board to help prove somebody wrong has serious problems. The fact of the matter isn’t that you can clean “close to” 400 lbs or that you’re “they type of cat you wouldn’t wanna see on the field.” The fact of the matter is that I made a post that had the sarcasm overflowing off of it and you still didn’t pick it up, infact, you even went on to say that I was ignorant. Lets just say that you’re right and that I am ignorant. In that case, you my friend, would be one of the most gullible people in the world because for anybody to believe somebody else when they say that they do Swiss Ball squats while wearing rollerblades would have to be THE MOST gullible motherfucker on the face of the planet.

Also, considering the fact that you’re in college, I truly truly hope that you work on that spelling for your own sake as well as the other poor people that are forced to listen to your mindless banter (as well as your grammar)…

“…good enough for yourself.”

“feild”

“But I dont need to tell yourself anything…”

"…“you probably no it all…”

I sure hope to God that you’ve only been speaking English for a short while because if you’ve been speaking English your whole life then God have mercy on you.

Finally, I’d rather be ignorant and 140 lbs (which by the way has changed since the time I wrote that profile) than a stupid, gullible, dumbass who isn’t the type of cat you wouldn’t wanna see on the “feild.” I’mma shaken in mah boots!

I am sorry for being so ignorant. I knew I should have proof read my last reply. What was I thinking? Is that what you mean by sarcasm? I don’t know I am just a stupid PreMed student.
My problem with you is you have no knowledge of training much less swiss ball work so shut up. You can’t balance on a swiss ball so how would you know if it would benifit you. You dont, your an IDIOT. How bout you do this, go read a book.

P.S. So glad you don’t weigh 140 any more!

    To Invisible,

Though it is nice you are a seemingly well conditioned athlete you may want to read some highly intelligent individuals who have no vested interest in selling you duraballs or swiss balls(Tudor Bumpa, Dave Tate etc.)Anyway where are you a premed student I only ask because I am one myself.

I’ve always loved the phrase “Your an idiot.”

So much is revealed in so few words.

How did you even get into PreMed with such sloppy spelling and an obvious lack of intelligence thereof?

I thought the idea was quite interesting since I’ve never heard or seen such a thing before.

Try not to criticize someone who is obviously more creative than you’ll ever be, even if he didn’t invent it.

soty:

My youngest brother is the worst speller he is although gramaticlly correct. And he is going to med school.

Even, when he was young in high school the teacher thought his writing was horrible when he wrote on paper but when he used the computer the writting was absoultly flawless. And not to metion he scored a 1450 on his S.A.T.

In health,

Pardon my ignorance I wasn’t premed, but now I am confused. I got that Chris was kidding from the beginning, that was funny. But was invisible telling Chris that he needed to learn more about Swis Ball work and not to make fun of it? OR was invisible telling Chris that he is an idiot for doing swiss ball squats, not knowing Chris was kidding?

People that weigh under 200 lbs are still allowed to make jokes, right?

Just checking,
