#FatblasterFriday | A Bosu Circuit Workout that won’t embarrass you at the gym

Last week I asked my Facebook group (not a member yet? Click on the link and ‘like’ the page) for some suggestions for my next #FatblasterFriday real time workout video (subscribe to my YouTube channel so as never to miss a workout).

My favourite response?

“bosu balance trainer stuff that I could use in the gym (nothing I’d be embarrassed having people see me do if you know what I mean lol)”

Yes, my friend, I know EXACTLY what you mean 😉

We’ve talked before about why I love the Bosu. All of the wonderful things it can add to your workout. How it can be used for strength and cardio as well as core. How it challenges muscles that you didn’t even know you had…

Today’s #FatblasterFriday workout is a whole body, 5-move Bosu circuit workout that will strengthen your muscles, elevate your heart rate and challenge your core, all without EMBARRASSING you in the gym 😉

Set your timer for 10 rounds of 45 s work and 15 s rest. All you need is a Bosu (and perhaps a mat, if you need to come to your knees for pushups).

    • Michelle, I save all the weird contortionist moves for clients who haven’t been doing their homework! Don’t get to the gym between sessions? Expect to do something strange (and challenging!)

  2. Love this circuit!!
    I’m dying to try the plank diagonal toe touch – hopefully next week I can do it!!
    Thanks for another great workout!!

    • Kim, they’re move challenging than I made them look (at least I hope I made them look easy!). Add some speed and increased range of motion once you get them down. Holy core!

  3. Great functional fitness! Pure love. Huge respect.

  8. Great bosu workout ideas!

    One of my exercises from my trainer is explosive bosu push-ups, where I do a push-up while holding onto the sides of the bosu and then jump it off the ground for a second. It makes a loud noise when it’s landing back on the ground and embarrasses me a bit, so I can totally relate to the concern!

    • That’s a tough move Emily! I’ve done explosive pushups off a bench before; maybe a little quieter than using the Bosu!
      Thanks for sharing!

  9. We did pushups using the Bosu at pilates last week. Very challenging!
