I think there's a place for a physioball alternating chest press early in the training process when you're working to recruit as many stablizing muscles as possible.  As training progresses, you would obviously want to move to a more stable position (bench) to engage the prime movers more and train more maximal strength.  I also like the glute recruitment that the physioball press incorporates, as I aim to have my athletes learn to activate their glutes early in the off-season.

Todd is a local guy in San Diego. We have had him come in as a guest speaker at the corporate wellness facility I manage. Overall he gets results with his athletes despite the use of a phyiso ball for presses(ha!!). He has intensity, is charismatic, and spits knowledge(true or not) that people like to hear. Props to him for continuing to get press and having a lucrative business practice.

I stopped listening after I heard 'physioball dumbbell press'

I think his comment (around the 1 minute mark) re: "The core represents 60% of one's power" has *some* truth to it but I think it does more to add to the mass confusion that already exists in our core stability crazed profession.  I think people are going to interpret this and act upon it by emphasizing even more "core" training at the expense of emphasizing heavy free-weight/free standing lifts, which, by themselves should be considered some of the best "core" training exercises we have.
