Fit Tip: Bust Out the BOSU!
Monday Morning Fit Tip:
TRY ADDING THE BOSU INTO YOUR WORKOUT
BOSU stands for “Both Sides Up,” because you can use either side of it to enhance your workout. The BOSU ball forces you to maintain your center of gravity while any exercise, providing a phenomenal way to prepare and tone your body for everyday life. Here are 3 quick & easy ways to add the BOSU into your workout!
2. Triple Squats
With the platform side down, stand to the side of the BOSU with your right foot on top. Squat down, then step onto the dome with your left foot and lower into another squat. Next, step to the other side of the BOSU and squat, repeating the sequence of triple squats for about a minute. *Challenge: Take out the middle squat, jumping from side to side to squat.
3. Mountain Climbers
With your hands on the flat side of the BOSU or holding onto the edges, start in plank position. Bring one knee at a time up towards your chest, squeezing your abdominals inwards to protect your back. Once you have the hang of it, try increasing your speed. *Challenge: Do 3 sets of 10 Mountain Climbers followed by 10 Push-ups.
