Know what makes squatting 135lbs harder than standing on a ball? Squatting 270 on the floor like a regular person.

I almost never purposefully wish that someone will get hurt, but I'm making an exception in this case.

It looks like even though he's sitting back, all of the weight is on his toes.

Meh, I know everyone hates that picture. I think being strong on an unstable platform like that is a useful skill. I remember having to lift awkward things while on the back deck of a fast boat. squatting on a ball would've been good for that.
