I used to teach a weekly Bosu class. Sixty minutes of balance training, core, speed, agility and strength. I gave it up because it conflicted with Sunday family time.
But I miss it (and my body misses it; the ‘use it or lose it’ principle definitely applies to balance training ).
Never used a Bosu balance trainer before? Here’s what you’re missing out on:
- improved balance (guess that’s why it’s called a ‘balance’ trainer)
- better core stabilization (just standing on the dome activates all sorts of tiny stabilizer muscles; muscles you probably didn’t even know you had)
- stronger knees and ankles (a must if you want to protect yourself from falling on ice or tripping over your children’s toys)
- enhanced proprioception (knowing where your body is in space)
Today’s #FatblasterFriday workout combines upper and lower body strength moves with some plyometrics and a bit of fast foot work. Only 6 exercises, performed circuit style, 30 s on, 10 s off. Twice through the circuit and you’re free to get on with your day!
You’ll need a set of hand weights and a Bosu balance trainer (but don’t fret if you don’t have one or somebody let the air out of yours… I’ve included Bosu-less options as well).
