Five Bosu-Ball Based Workouts To Do With Kids!

Five Bosu-Ball Based Workouts!
My daughter and I were so excited when our very own Bosu-Balls arrived in the mail.  I have been a long time lover of the Bosu ball as a fitness instructor but was only able to use them while at the gym.

1. Incorporate the Bosu into an obstacle course!  My daughter and I love taking the Bosu outside and using it to jump off of as part of a race through an obstacle course making fit, fun! 
2.  Bosu Planks.   The Bosu provides a soft surface for the forearms for a plank, but also is slightly unstable unlike the floor providing more of a challenge for your core. 
3. Bosu Pushups.  These can be done with the dome side up or with the dome side down.  The use of the Bosu during this exercise provides and extra stability challenge. 
4.  Balance Exercises.  My daughter likes me to tell her different things to do and see if she can maintain her balance.  Such as "lift one leg", "reach out an arm"...It's a lot harder than it looks!  Balance is definitely a challenge developmentally for young children. 
4. Ski jumps.  We will jump sideways onto the Bosu, propelling off and landing lightly with both feet on the opposite side.  This plyometric exercise is so beneficial for kids (and adults)!
If you Purchase a BOSU Sport and you will get the BOSU Sport-Kids DVD for FREE by using code BOSUSWEATPINK15, full of many more exercises to do with your kids!

  1. That's great you are involving your daughter! I think kids would love these activities since they tend to be drawn towards activities requiring balance!

  2. Hey Colleen- Thank you for the tips! Also, I think that you had told me, you can only get the free DVD if you buy a full-sized BOSU, not the sport, right? I think that was the issue I was having with the code.
