Body Beast and Stability Ball
I currently have a stability ball already but I wanted to get anyone's take on using the stability ball instead of the bench for the program? I know there can be some risk if you try to lift heavy on it? How were your results using the ball?

Personnaly i would not use it as it is a pretty instable platform and this increase the risk of injury while limiting you on the weight. Check craiglist for a used one, you will find some not that expensive.

i'm in the middle of my 2nd round using the stability ball. i'm looking forward to getting a bench but i haven't had any problems with the ball and have still made some good gains using it. start now with a ball and get a bench when you can.

Before starting Body Beast, I went out and purchased a bench and have been using it the first 7 weeks of the program. I'm in the last week of the Bulk phase and decided to mix things up a little bit and use a stability ball this week. I lowered the weights a little bit for safety but overall I'm still getting a great workout and a little additional core work using the ball. Bench or ball, either way I don't think you can go wrong.

I think going forward, I'm going to alternate from week to week on the bench and the ball, just to keep the workouts a little different and interesting.

You can't go as heavy with the stability ball but will get a better core workout!
