Yep...don't think it was meant to be used in the manner Garcia was using it.

However it could be the McDonalds coffee incident all over again...because McD's didn't disclaim 'caution, extremely hot' on the cup and some idiot drives with the cup in his lap, burns himself, sues and wins huge $$$$ cause the consumer didn't use common sense. In this case, exercise ball manufacturers will have to disclaim - do not use while benching 2 x 90lb dumbells giving you a combined weight of 380+lbs which is not meant for a vinyl ball dumbass.
