Personal Trainer Kai Wheeler demonstrates 10 awesome bosu ball exercises! The bosu ball is a great piece of equipment because it promotes core stabilization and neutral spine posture; key components of functional training. The half dome ball can be used on either side, offering varied levels of difficulty. The nature of the bosu ball requires balance, or the ability to maintain stable body positioning despite an external stimulus. To achieve balance, the joints, muscles and neurological systems integrate to function harmoniously. Along with balance, we have proprioception, our body’s sense of joint stability and awareness of body positioning. Proprioception is also challenged as we attempt to stand on the surface. Lastly, the bosu ball promotes gradation of force; ability to maintain muscular force throughout dynamic movement without compromising body positioning.
