If you’ve used the BOSU Ball at the gym, or if you have one at your house, it may be time to change up your moves! Here are three moves that will give you a total-body workout. Curtis Hyde, a Certified Personal Trainer with 24-Hour Fitness, shows us how:
Twist lunge with back foot on BOSU:
Keep your weight on front flat foot with your back toe down onto the top of the ball. Make sure you stand up straight and keep your eyes forward. Then drop your back knee a half inch from the floor. When at the bottom, twist your body towards your front leg. Rotate until your back elbow reaches your knee, twist back and press up using your front lead leg pushing through your heel. Don’t let your heel off the ground. That can be hard on your knees!
Push-ups across BOSU:
Start with one hand on and one hand off the BOSU. Keeping toes together, and your body in a straight line, hold your belly button to your spine. Then complete a push up. Next, walk your hands to the opposite side, replacing them where they were in the opposite position and repeat.
Rotate the BOSU around you:
Hold BOSU with firm grip and stand up straight with good posture. Keep your abdomen tight. Then create a slight bend in your elbows, rotate your arms up and around your body, as if you look like a human windmill. Then rotate to the opposite side.
