The Bosu brings a fun, challenging twist to conventional training, allowing you to develop your balance, strength, stretching, cardio endurance and proprioception (awareness of where you are in space)!
It doesn’t look like much, just a rubber ball cut in half but the term “BOSU” has evolved beyond the product to now mean “Both Sides Utilized,” a mindful approach to exercise that is a step beyond traditional training. Originally Invented by David Weck, in 2000 the Bosu has quickly become known industry-wide as a challenging, progressive tool to expand movement capabilities, improving core stabilization and neutral spinal posture, and enhancing flexibility.
The Bosu is intended to keep users slightly off balance as they practice an array of exercises from push-ups and stepping to dumbbell workouts.
Currently, there is a shift towards developing an efficient body, allowing you to work, play and train harder, for longer without pain in everyday life. This type of training is referred to as functional training, or focusing on integrated movement, balance and body awareness. Training “smarter” involves neurological complexity or training both mind and muscles to accurately respond to daily movement challenges.
Functional training has moved beyond core training and encompasses an evolved performance approach that challenges the whole body. Instead of focusing on building muscle groups in isolation, functional training requires whole body, integrated movement, as well as the need for several muscle groups to work together. It moves away from isolation or single joint training. This results in a training style that trains better movement, NOT bigger muscles.
