To show you what not to do, each week STACK brings you a moment from the weight room or sports field gone horribly wrong.

"Fitballing" is a phenomenon in which industrious young people at the beach bury a physioball in the sand and use it as a mini trampoline. If you're an athlete who enjoys jumping off things, we understand you may have a lot of questions about fitballing. To help answer them, we've recruited the fine people of YouTube.
