Using the BOSU for strength Part 1: Strength exercises on the floor

  1. For your Chest and Upper Back:
    The Bosu Ball provides an unstable surface as in the large exercise ball to use for a bench. This forces you to engage not only your core, but also your glutes and hamstrings as you maintain a “bridge” stance. The following list of exercises are shown in the video:
    Bench Press
    Flies
    Reverse Flies
    Push Ups
    Tricep Dips
  2. For your CORE:
    The Bosu Ball also allows your spine to utilize a greater range of motion because it follows the natural curve of your spine. When you lie on a mat on the floor, the floor partially reverses the natural curve in your lower back, and this decreases the range of motion that the spine can move. Therefore, your abdominal muscles aren’t working as hard.
    The following list of exercises are shown in the video:
    Crunches (vary the direction)
    Lower Back extensions
    Planks

Have fun!
