wish he sprained his ankle

One of the trainers at my gym today was trying to jump rope….. WHILE STANDING ON A MEDICINE BALL. As he was doing this, another one of the trainers was taking photos of him. And these people have master’s degrees
dont know about your gym but mine has about 3 trainers that atg squat 315 for warmup reps like it’s feather weight.
Sounds like a couple of guys that could give you good workout advice.
why would you wish harm on your fellow human being ? i mean what if he said to himself " i wish that jacked whiteboy rips his biceps while deadlifting "

unlike most trainers they dont seem to realize going beyond parallel is bad for knees

when you said medicine ball i imagined a swiss ball and i was like niggas can balance.
They were warming up for their squats on top of a Bodyball.

in what? kinesiology….
ya well try doing it on top of a power rack then talk to me

talk to ceaze like that again…i dare you pissmop

ya, douche alert
medicine ball or did it look like this?

They’re used to strengthen the ankle and increase proprioceptive input, thus increasing stability and better balance/ ability to react.

No.

standing on a ball puts you in a bowlegged position

Most people need more ankle mobility, not stability. This of course excludes those with ankle sprains. Increasing stability at the ankle will result in the body trying to gain mobility at the knee. Also, performance improvements are greater when training on a stable surface:

The effects of ten weeks of lower-body unstable surface training on markers of athletic performance.

Initially reserved for rehabilitation programs, unstable surface training (UST) has recently grown in popularity in strength and conditioning and general exercise scenarios. Nonetheless, no studies to date have examined the effects of UST on performance in healthy, trained individuals. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of 10 weeks of lower-body UST on performance in elite athletes. Nineteen healthy, trained members (ages 18-23 years) of a National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I collegiate men’s soccer team participated. The experimental (US) group (n = 10) supplemented their normal conditioning program with lower-body exercises on inflatable rubber discs; the control (ST) group (n = 9) performed the same exercises on stable surfaces. Bounce drop jump (BDJ) and countermovement jump (CMJ) heights, 40- and 10-yard sprint times, and T-test (agility) times were assessed before and after the intervention. The ST group improved significantly on predicted power output on both the BDJ (3.2%) and CMJ (2.4%); no significant changes were noted in the US group. Both groups improved significantly on the 40- (US = -1.8%, ST = -3.9%) and 10-yard sprint times (US = -4.0%, ST = -7.6%). The ST group improved significantly more than the US group in 40-yard sprint time; a trend toward greater improvement in the ST group was apparent on the 10-yard sprint time. Both groups improved significantly (US = 2.9%, ST = -4.4%) on T-test performance; no statistically significant changes were apparent between the groups. These results indicate that UST using inflatable rubber discs attenuates performance improvements in healthy, trained athletes. Such implements have proved valuable in rehabilitation, but caution should be exercised when applying UST to athletic performance and general exercise scenarios.

That was point. You said he was a trainer. A lot of times these guys need to experience something or at least be able to demonstrate it before they can educate the public.

Not sure that I got owned.

I’m aware of the research. My point is that if he’s a trainer and is trying to either 1. demonstrate something or 2. check the math on something he learned, where is the problem?

BRB going to grab my basketball and jump up and down on top of it for half an hour to see if it’s really a good idea.

demonstrate different ways of pwning oneself with his own ignorance ?

math ? nothing mathematical about building lean tissue broseph.
brb going to try to stick a bowling ball up my asshole while balancing on my dads testicles. brb.
he was doing it because, well, maybe it had nothing to do with an elite routine, but was just impressive? youtube son!

the guy is pretty small…..so i think it is
he probably read a pubmed report about it that someone copied and pasted onto a fitness forum

I doubt they were checking the math on anything.

It’s common sense…you don’t jump and down on an object that could easily lead to you slipping on your ass and breaking something and you sure as hell don’t get your client to do that shit.

Did he slip?

No.

Wobble boards and balance improving systems are fairly common place.

Am I recommending a body ball for it? No, but I would definitely recommend a wobble board. It sounds like these two were seeing if they could do it. They could, they did and that’s pretty much the point.

Ankle stability is one of the best things you can build on if you’re an athlete of any kind.

Working on a wobble board builds that, as demonstrated in the article posted previously by Ceaze.

Since they have masters degrees in PT I would bet they were probably testing the limits.
maybe there is enough spring jumping up and down on it that it becomes more stable because you are squishing it out like a pancake each time.

doesnt mean you should do it in the first place.
This is dumb. Anyone that actually tries to justify the intelligence of jumping rope on a medicine ball is so far removed from reality that any counter argument is bound to be lost. You don’t need a fucking pubmed article; basic common sense should tell you that it’s a stupid idea. Smart people do dumb things all the time. It doesn’t make it a great idea.

Ugh, no.

Doesn’t change the fact it was stupid.
you posted this thread right about the same time I sprained my ankle playing lacrosse and I never do that balance stuff

got anything I can do to increase ankle mobility once its all good and healed? or anything I can do to help it heal quicker?

You’d probably get more favorable results if you balance on the bowling ball with your dads testicles in your ass.

and that means he’s not working on balance because…?

So the fuck what if he is? There are better ways to work on balance that aren’t detrimental to your joints.
Anyone trying to defend doing stupid shit like this is an |idiot|

lol why are you arguing the idiocy of this?

Jump rope on a medicine ball.

The fact that anyone is actually trying to justify the stupidity of jumping roping on a ball is blowing my mind.
Pretty stupid, but fairly impressive if he pulled it off.
what does ceaze look like

he talks shit on everyone and posts alot of stuff from google

Where have I posted anything from google?

i wouldn’t think of it, pal.

in for vid of trainers falling on their ass and breaking tailbone

the truth is not talking shit…..
just broke my ankle jump roping on a ball. thanks a lot you douche

well lets put it this way, only dude here smaller than me that i listen to 75% of the time.

la hyaim

Im smaller and you better goddamn motherfucking listen to what the fuck I say.

And that "Smaller" thing isnt lasting too long….

PCT in about 2 weeks, then right onto Dbol, Deca, Enanthate and HGH.

picking it all up next week. then we’ll really see whats what.
