Are you having trouble creating a good home workout during the pandemic? Are you unsure what equipment you should get that is versatile, durable, and worth the money? Check out our blog over the next few weeks to see a series of different full body workouts that you can do at home with equipment that has value.
Today’s workout will use a piece of equipment called a BOSU Balance Trainer. Don’t be fooled, you can do much more than balance on this! As a PT I use a BOSU frequently when prescribing exercise to my patients, and I love its utility, portability, and ease of use. This piece of equipment can be purchased for around $100, which I think is a good value based on how many things you can use it for. Get your own BOSU here.
If you’re up for it, try the following workout!
Perform each exercise for 2 minutes, and complete 2 rounds. Push yourself to move quickly, but stay in control.
Up & Overs
Perform 20 repetitions of each exercise, complete 3 rounds! (for lunges do 10 reps on each leg, and for planks hold for 1 minute).
Squat to Overhead Press
Plank on Elbows
5 minute walk
Good job! This workout just scratches the surface of exercises you can do with the BOSU. Don’t be afraid to get creative, just stay safe!
