Do you BOSU?


I have a question.... Do you BOSU? This thing shown in the picture above is called a BOSU Ball. It is for exercising your core mostly, but will be beneficial in other areas too. My husband has been having some lower back problems and his MRI showed some discs issues. His dr. told him to start strengthening his core. The BOSU Ball is EXCELLENT for doing just that!

I decided to try it this weekend and WOW...It is so hard! Trying to stay balanced is a workout in itself LOL I kind of got the hang of it on a couple of specific exercises and enjoyed it! It is very gentle on your knees, which is nice!
For those who love to run, but it hurts your knees, this is a great alternative. While you can't go running on it, trust me, there are enough exercises you can choose from that will burn some serious calories just like running does!

If you want some cheap entertainment, this is sure to give you some laughs! Watching me, especially, trying to just get my balance is hilarious! I have some serious balance issues I guess! But they tell you to keep your eyes focused on one target but if they know personality types - they should know that a Sanguine JUST MIGHT NOT be able to accomplish this ;) but if we put our minds to it, it might possibly, just maybe, a tad better!HA HA :)

I Hope everyone had a great weekend :) I am excited to share some pictures from over the weekend with you guys!
Happy Monday my sweet friends!

When I worked out at the gym, my trainer friend used to make me get on that thing. It is a hoot to watch yourself in the mirror.
Can we get a live streaming video of you doing it? LOL!

Hi there, I have seen this ball at our gym but have absolutely no idea(until now)of what it was for. I guess it would be similar to those big round balls that people balance on.
I'd love to come join you. Have a great day my friend.

I can't say that I have ever tried one of those. I saw them at the gym when I worked out, but never was brave enough to climb aboard. :-)

Hi Loren, How are you doing with your exercise group? I know you were excited about it...

I have never heard of a BOSU ball--but I know that they keep coming out with all kinds of new gadgets for exercise... Right now, the best I can do is to walk --and walk regularly... That's it for me... ha

We are home from our 2nd trip is a month--and both of us have colds.. Yuk! Guess it will be REST for this upcoming week for both of us.

Hugs,
Betsy

These abdominal exercise machines offer an aerobic exercise workout with out having to have nay high impact exercises. You will burn fat and calories twice as fast as you do with other exercisers out there because it is incorporating your entire body, not just your lower half.

No joke, I would seriously hurt myself if I tried to use that! I wonder if they make one with safety bars??? ;-)
