Total Body Bosu Workout

Total Body Bosu Workout

A Bosu What?

I love to try new things, that are fitness related, of course. Ha. When I joined the gym I got to, they had a class I needed to try out. It’s called Bosu Core and More. This class is basically a class that incorporates Bosu Balls in the workout. And I loved it! Core Bosu workouts are great but sometimes you need a Total Body Bosu workout! Seriously, I love the Bosu Ball so much, I convinced my husband that I needed one of my own!

My Bosu Ball is amazing. I mean besides the fact that it is hot pink! Ok, who am I kidding, I love me some pink! Cue “Pink is my favorite color….” A Bosu ball is like a half stability ball and half a board  (like a plastic board). You can use it either way for different exercises. Balancing on the ball portion with the flat side down is perfect for squats and lunges. While, the flat side up is great for push ups, planks, and my favorite, Burpees! The best thing about it is it works your stabilizing muscles and you core so much!

Total Body Bosu Workout

This Total Body Bosu Workout is a total of 4 sets. 3 exercises per set with a balance challenge. The first 2 exercises will be 15 reps each and the balance challenge is 30 second hold. You will do each set of exercises 2 times through. This workout will take about 25 minutes with warm up and cool down!

And because I love you all so much, we are going to start this workout with Burpees!! Yes!!! Hey, think of it this way… Doing the burpees first in the workout means you get them done right away! WooHoo!! I think you all should be pros at burpees by now, especially if you’ve done my burpee workout!!

If you do not have a Bosu Ball at home or do not have access to one at a gym, you can do all of these without the Bosu! These exercises would be great to just do on the floor! So grab your mat, your Bosu Ball (if you have one), some weights and come workout with me! Also weights are totally optional!
