BOSU Ball Exercises

So I was thinking of a way of strenghtening my legs/ankles for running on trails and I thought BOSU would be a good idea.

Both. Sides. Up. is what it stands for. 🙂

There’s one in my gym, and I might try and use it once a week for a while and see how I get on.  I’ll also get some tips of the gym instructors to make sure I get to know the best exercises with it.

Here’s the exercises I’m thinking of doing for maybe a minute or half a minute each (and I might repeat the circuit 2-3 times – instead of my plyometrics):

  • Jog in place / High knees (round side up)
  • Balance – both legs  / single leg (flat side up)
  • Squat (arms in front) (round side up)
  • Lunges (round side up)
  • Side Squats and Hops (weights) (round side up)
  • Jumps – front and back (round side up)
  • Jumps – side to side (round side up)
  • Single Leg Abduction (round side up)
  • Supine Bridge (round side up)
  • V Sit Up (round side up)
  • Push Ups (flat side up)
  • Plank (round side up)

Have you ever used a BOSU ball?  What did you think of it?
