It’s time to workout with one of my favorite pieces of equipment: the BOSU balance trainer. I love the BOSU because it is so versatile, easy to transport and challenging. Even if you do not have a a BOSU you can still do this workout at home or you can find the BOSU at your gym and try it out too.
If you choose to do this workout (or any) with a BOSU, do not stand on the BOSU with the dome facing down. Exercises like push-ups, mountain climbers and planks with the BOSU down are okay, but do not stand on it with the dome facing down.
25- minute BOSU Workout
Let’s get to work with this 25 minute BOSU workout. Remember, you can do this even without a BOSU.
When you are doing your BOSU Heisman, make sure you are pausing when you land on your one foot and really engaging that core to bring the opposite leg up with your knee as close to your chest as possible.
As always, form comes first, and speed comes second. Slow down and focus on your form- you will benefit much more.
