Bosu Ball Workout

Β 

This workout is very simple to set up (all you need is a Bosu Ball) and can be done in any timeframe that you have (anywhere from 15-30 minutes), but should be done at a fast-pace and with minimal rest. You can even fit this workout in at the end of a workout for an extra calorie burn! Complete all exercises in a row for 1 round, rest for 1 minute, then begin with the first exercise for round 2. Complete as many rounds as you can in the time you have! (Try for 4-6 rounds!)

As always, be sure to warm up before beginning the first round and cool down and stretch when you are finished.

  • 20 Bosu Ball Diagonal knee drives (10 knee drives each side) (flat side up)
