The Bosu. Many have seen it in the gym, but few have actually used it. It’s time to change that and get fit, get in shape, and become healthier by using a Bosu! The Bosu ball is one of the most versatile pieces of equipment available. Use the Bosu ball on either of its sides for over 40 different exercises that can target all areas of your body. The Bosu provides a multitude of variations on moves that allow you to progressively make your workout more challenging.  The workout below is an upper, intermediate level workout. Though the moves are relatively basic, the intensity is high, so don’t worry, it will still get your heart racing and your sweat dripping!

Equipment Needed: water for hydration, BOSU ball, interval timer

What to Do: For this workout you will perform each exercise for 30 seconds and take 10 seconds to rest in between exercises. Perform 3 rounds or circuits of the 6 exercises. This may seem like enough rest, but this workout is designed to work different parts of the body in order, so you are resting your chest/arms when working your abs, and so forth. For optimal results do this workout 3-4 times weekly for a total body burn. It’s only 12 minutes long so you can do it! See the videos below for demonstrations to ensure you are using proper form.
