I've been going back and fourth about how dangerous I should go with this blog. If standing on a board while balanced on a bowling ball seems unreasonable . . . then please . . . listen to reason. I personally believe that most things can be done safely. If you take a disciplined approach, you will be safe. Just remember, if you spend twenty minutes practicing, it is 20 minutes more that most people you will ever meet. The person who falls off a bowling ball while balanced on a board, is likely going to be the person who just watched you do it. They will jump up and fall right down. Don't be that person. Of course that video will likely get more hits.
Here are a few bowling ball balancing tricks. Do not attempt these until you watch the earlier video . . . or do. I'm no balancing expert. I've just spent a few dozen hours more than most practicing this stuff. I also realized that the closer I film to 5:00 pm, the more Figgy wants to get involved. He really just wants to get fed. That is all. He has no real interest in idiots standing on bowling balls.
This video teaches you how to balance on a bowling ball. There is the potential for hurting yourself, so please be careful and use a chair for stability. You can do this same balance on a basketball, but you need to play a bit with the inflation. Also, do it on thick carpet. The way my living room is set up, I can't really get a full head to toe shot while still being on the "good" carpet. I am on carpet, but it's not really the right kind of carpet. Along those lines, it's really easy to get caught up in the gear . . . finding the right ball, the right carpet, the right shoes. Eventually, these things should not matter. Performaners need to adapt to any variables . . . except mud . . . if someone asks you to perfom this stunt in mud . . . just say "no".
