I missed my weekly Tell it Tuesday due the the massive snow storm I am currently experiencing. I am very excited I don’t have to get to work today even MORE excited I get to use the best home exercise
toy equipment to get my workout in this morning! Yep! That’s right, I’m talking about the BoSU Ball! I heart this stability ball! Do you know why it’s called a BoSU Ball? The name BoSU stands for Both Sides Up. I use this ball in so many different ways on both sides. One flat side, one stability ball side. I first used the ball at the gym when I had hired a personal trainer. He had instructed me some basic ways to use this ball. Simple movements like lunges and squats. Well, Iittle did I know there was a world of exercise to do with this thing!! I find daily inspiration from fitness expert Chalene Johnson and her 30 second Instagram clips of HIIT moves on the BoSU. I can find even more ideas when I Pinterest it, or Google it. I love the challenge that the stability gives me when performing planks, crunches, leg lifts, even burpees…yup, BoSU burpees happen in my house 😉 Other pros are that is reasonably priced, doesn’t take up a lot of space, easy to modify exercises, don’t need a lot of time to get a challenging sweat session going, and it’s fun!!! I highly encourage everyone to consider investing in one of these super pieces of fitness equipment. They sell them in every sports store and on Amazon. Many even come with a DVD workout to go with it. They range from $100-$120. I have even seen PINK ones!! (insert squeal!!!Eeeee!!) I missed the boat on the pink but maybe you can get it, use it, and tell me all about it and I can be all proud and jealous of you!
