The amount of muscle control it takes to remain balanced on that ball while doing a heavy squat is immense. But I don't know why they're using that ball, these things exist for this very purpose.

I laughed but I probably don't deserve the right. I was doing squats with 505lbs last week, my foot buckled for some reason, and well...the bigger they are...
#97 to #68 - llmazell ONLINE (04/24/2013) [-]
lol 505lbs I really wonder if some people actually realize the ******* numbers they throw around ahah
User avatar #102 to #97 - CaptainKill (04/24/2013) [-]
Have you ever seen how much weight people squat? You use a ton of large muscles and it's not hard at all to get way up there.
#106 to #102 - llmazell ONLINE (04/25/2013) [-]
only person I have even seen hit 500lbs on squat was a 250lbs guy that is on roids at my gym. Unless you are ******* heman im calling bs.
User avatar #107 to #106 - CaptainKill (04/25/2013) [-]
If I felt like going through the effort I could pull up the accident report I had to file at the gym at my school. It has the weight listed and I couldn't have made it up because they're the one's who write it up, not me. Also, I am pretty built, 5'10 205lbs 11% bf, so I think it's perfectly reasonable to imagine someone my size squatting that much.
#108 to #107 - llmazell ONLINE (04/25/2013) [-]
Im 5'11" and was about 195lbs with 9% body fat around my peak last summer. And i was squatting 315lbs for reps. Never checked for a max, are you doing squats on a smith machine perhaps? That might make it sound a little more believable but still 505lbs is a **** ton of weight
User avatar #109 to #108 - CaptainKill (04/25/2013) [-]
Yes it was on a smith machine. I probably should have mentioned that earlier. I also lift for low reps, 3-5 usually, so that's why I'm doing so much.
#110 to #109 - llmazell ONLINE (04/25/2013) [-]
lol wtf are doing squatting 505lbs on the ******* smith machine. Id recommend the smith machine for someone that is a) injured or b) a beginner. even then id still tell most people starting in the gym to go and just do free weight with the bar. if you are hitting that weight then move to free weight, you are just going to plateau with the smith and **** up your balancing muscles
User avatar #111 to #110 - CaptainKill (04/25/2013) [-]
Well I've been using it because I wanted to avoid situations like the one I mentioned in my first comment. To be honest I won't be doing much squatting of any type for awhile after that. I've still got a sprained ankle from it, but to be honest I think I got off lucky considering how much weight I was playing with.
#112 to #111 - llmazell ONLINE (04/25/2013) [-]
id say start squatting on the free weight and let your ego go. I know how it feels when you just keep rackin the plates on the bar but usually you end up ******* up your form or having an accident. Trust I was there too and let my ego go above what I could actually lift and started to cheat or use weaker exercises to get a higher weight lift. If you really wanna build some strong muscle you got to take it easy and do what your body can handle. I have been chronically depressed and lost a lot of muscle plus my exams right now for uni aint helping. But still once your ankle is better try the free weight i guarantee the burn you will feel is 20xs more then what you get on the smith. If you want a trick to help you with balance take a 5lbs or a 2.5lbs plate and put it under the ball of feet so the back half of your foot is on it for both feet and it will help you balance on the squat. take care and keep lifting!
User avatar #113 to #112 - CaptainKill (04/25/2013) [-]
I'll give that a try. However I must say that the reason I was using a smith machine wasn't for my ego, it was because I feel a little uncomfortable lifting that much weight freely without a way to rack it if I get into trouble like that. I'm actually pretty good about identifying areas where I'm cheating myself and fixing it, but that's mostly form wise, and this is more of a personal safety thing. Even with a spotter, if I fall with that much weight or anything close, spotter or not, I'm in **** .
#114 to #113 - llmazell ONLINE (04/25/2013) [-]
bro then you don't do that weight. Try out 2 plates or even 1 plate to get the feel of it and make sure you have the form down before you up the weight. If you cant push up the weight for your last rep for ex. have the bars set up that are parallel beside you around to your waist and when you go down bend your knees to as low as you can go then just slowly bend forward till the bar sits on the bars parallel beside you and slide under. simple.

505 is very do able.. Im 6'0 185 and can squat 320
#105 to #100 - llmazell ONLINE (04/25/2013) [-]
bro 320 is very believable I have been lifting for 4 years. imagine 200lbs on top of that then squatting that. just ridiculous

Question!
why does it say happy new year on the last panel?
#41 to #36 - IAMSTEEEVEE (04/24/2013) [-]
Answer!
It's because every year a lot of people make a new years resolution to lose weight/being strong/be healthier, and well they don't know what to do so they read women's health or something silly like that for tips on being more athletic and end up doing really, really, really stupid **** , then they end up going for a a month and never come back. well until next year
User avatar #61 to #41 - brehon (04/24/2013) [-]

It's okay, the extremely buff guy spotting him could easily catch him and the 135 pound weight on his shoulders at the same time.

At least he has a spotter.
User avatar #15 to #14 - sonicwind (04/24/2013) [-]
I doubt when that ball comes shooting out from under him his 200lbs ass goes flying and the 135 pound weights there goes flying that "having a spotter" will help.
User avatar #16 to #15 - plainarcane **User deleted account** (04/24/2013) [-]
If the spotter already has his hands on the bar then he might be able to prevent it from landing on his friend.
User avatar #17 to #16 - sonicwind (04/24/2013) [-]
that doesnt make this smart or safe. I also imagine even if he did manage to catch it and save it from crashing to the ground and killing his friend that it would smash in to his shins knocking him over and they bar would smash in to the guy anyways along with his "spotter"
User avatar #103 to #17 - plainarcane **User deleted account** (04/25/2013) [-]
I never said that what they're doing in the picture isn't idiotic, I was just pointing out that it's slightly less idiotic because at least the guy has the sense to employ a spotter.
User avatar #104 to #103 - sonicwind (04/25/2013) [-]
i know i was just telling u anout the image i had of the lifter falling on his ass the spotter catching it smashing his shins droping the weights on the lifters face then the spotter falling on top of the lifter and now there is a dead lifter more or less 69ing the spoter
