Gym Fails That Will Totally Make You Skip Your Next Workout

Instability training can help you build a stronger core and greater overall strength as your body balances to as you execute your reps. A stronger core translates to better lifts and better posture, too. However, going overboard and doing moronic exercises like the one above while using that much weight on your shoulders — that’s 135 lbs., by the way — is a terrific way to snap your neck and/or have the bar crush your trachea after the ball slips out from under your feet.

Instead, do pushups or squats on an inverted BOSU ball or train unilaterally while holding a dumbbell or kettlebell in one hand.
