BOSU Ball Stability Plank - Exercise Video & Instruction
While some people look at various progressions of core exercises and ask the
question "why?" others dare to ask "why not?" It may seem that using both BOSU
balance trainer and stability ball together for an advanced progression to the
plank is on the verge of ridiculous but on the other hand, if you are able to do
the stability ball plank with ease and there is a BOSU nearby, adding another
source of instability is going to make the exercise slightly more difficult.
This is not to say that you should make it a point to focus on exercises such
as this BOSU ball stability plank for your workouts, but if the opportunity
presents itself, there is more reasons to do than reasons not to do them. In
addition to adding more instability to work your core and various other muscles
to stabilize, using multiple pieces of equipment is more fun for most people and
can increase workout morale. As mentioned before, if you are working out your
core and you have both the BOSU & stability ball handy you can perform this
plank at any time during your workout.
BOSU Stability Plank Safety Considerations
Other than putting stress on your lower back if performed improperly there
are no real imminent dangers when performing this exercise if you use common
sense. When you work with a stability ball there is always a chance you could
lose your balance and fall so make sure the immediate area is free from clutter.
Have at least a few feet of free space on each side and if there is something
nearby, make sure it will not hurt you if you fall on it.
