Until recently, I’ve never even heard of a Bosu and then when I did, I still didnt’ know what it was. I walked past a class where people were jumping on a half a ball. Looked strange. One of my friends said it was intense and that we should try it. Ok…….
Oh my God!!! Intense was not the word. I don’t think I sweated as much in any of the bootcamps or spin classes that I have taken since I started working out. Wow!! Intense really does not begin to describe a Bosu class. Imagine bouncing on a ball while doing squats, lunges, and other things the instructor throws at you. If you ever get a chance to take the class and don’t have a heart condition, take it.
I found out that BOSU stands for Both Sides Up. It makes sense because the BOSU ball is really a half of ball that you can use either way. Both ways hurt is what I do know!
Here is a small example I found online to demonstrate what a Bosu is…..
Looks like fun, doesn’t it? I will say that as far as “fun” exercises go, this one really is one of the better one:)
