My take on a "turbo" Barre series using a Bosu ball to add an extra challenge! (Reps shortened for video)
Next public Barre class this Friday at 5:30pm at Lucille Roberts Forest Hills! We won't do this (not enough Bosu's to go around) but we will work up a good burn! * * Bosu Squat series: 8-12 reps of full range motion squat 8-12 reps halfway up and down (without coming to full standing) 16 quick pulses Hold in low range of motion squat 12-15 seconds Resume full range of motion squats 8-12 reps * * Enjoy!! (Also totally repping my @bollyxfitness top in this video)
The BOSU! Don’t you just love it?! Take away that stable base of support (a.k.a the floor!) and it changes the whole exercise. We’re constantly finding new ways to test your stability, endurance and strength giving you a stronger, fitter and leaner body! ⠀ ⠀
Legs and Glutes!!!!!! Here are some exercises that will target the hamstrings, quads and glutes. Build up that 🍑 !!! The first is a cable hamstring curl to a kickback. The secret to the hamstring curl is to keep your knee down and your leg in line with your standing leg. Only use your hamstring to curl up. Then keep your hips square and follow it with the kick back. The second works your abductor muscles (outer thighs) and glutes. Drop into a squat on the bosu ball and press your knees outward until failure. This can also be done on the ground. The bosu ball challenges your stability.
Fitness Friday- Flashback to some exercises from a workout using the Bosu. The unstable surface makes exercises more challenging and engages more muscles. Try 20 seconds of each exercise and repeat 4 rounds (with or without the Bosu). 👏🏼💥
