BOSU Ball Workout

Ahh, so last week I did my first Bosu ball workout, I really didn’t know how bad my balance was until I tried standing on that thing! I was sore three days after the workout! If you’ve never worked out with a bosu ball you need to give it a shot, it works your entire body and really helps with your balance.

I cannot wait to do this workout again!

BOSU

Mountain Climbers—Ball Side Down

Place your hands on the sides of the BOSU ball with a firm grip. Hold a steady plank position. When you’re ready, lift your right leg a few inches off the ground. Bring your knee to your nose, and then switch legs.

Jumps-Ball Side up

This move is just like a squat except you jump on the ball side and then jump off. When you jump onto the BOSU ball, hold the squat for two seconds before you jump off. Try to work your way up to 10 seconds.

Burpee-Ball Side up

This move is performing a burpee move but starting off with your hands on the Bosu ball, do a push up, jump your legs in, jump up and repeat.

Forearm Plank-Ball Side down

Place your forearms in the middle of the BOSU ball . Hold a steady plank position.

Side Lunges—Ball Side Up

Start with your right foot sturdy in the middle and step your left foot out to the side. Squat. Bring your left foot into the middle of the ball, and step your right foot out to the side. Squat. Keep switching legs until you do 12 reps on each side.

Chest Press—Ball Side Up

Grab a set of dumbbells and lay with your back on the ball. Place your feet a few inches from the BOSU ball and lift your hips up. With a weight in each hand, bring your arms out to a “T”. Bend your elbows to a 90-degree angle and press up. Repeat 12 to 15 times. This helps work your hamstrings, glutes, chest, arms and core.
