workouts the BOSU balance trainer can be used simply as a form of
resistance rather than something to stand on or lay on. This is exactly how it
is used during BOSU twisting lunges. During this movement, one of the most effective
leg exercises, the walking lunge is combined here with a basic torso
twist. With the added resistance of the BOSU balance trainer the exercise
becomes even more challenging. An added benefit to using the BOSU as resistance
is you can easily transition into another exercise such as
BOSU platform push-ups.
You can perform the torso twist with the BOSU held against your chest but to
increase the difficulty of BOSU twisting lunges you can simply extend your arms
out further, holding the BOSU as far as you can away from your body. Another
progression to these lunges is the very challenging BOSU lunge, push-up. BOSU
lunges with a twist can be performed at any point in a leg workout. They are
especially good for a dynamic warm up for advanced individuals.
