BOSU is an acronym for "both sides up". The BOSU® Balance Trainer can be used with the platform side either up or down for different types of balance challenge. The solid platform is 25 inches in diameter and the dome should be inflated until it is firm. Two recessed handles on the bottom of and towards the sides on the platform make it easy to turn over or carry. This hybrid fitness product has its genesis in the field of medicine, as well as balance, functional and sports specific training. Neuromuscular physiology, which helps to define human movement, provides the science that backs this remarkably complete approach to training. The BOSU® Balance Trainer offers a different means to make exercise more appealing and effective for average people, fitness enthusiasts and highly trained athletes.
You can walk, run, step, hop, jump and leap on the BOSU® Balance Trainer. Not only can these rhythmic activities be sequenced for an aerobic workout, they can be progressed or sequenced to challenge the anaerobic energy system as well. Whether you're working at an easy steady rate-pace that can be maintained almost indefinitely, or pushing the intensity with anaerobic intervals, you'll experience dynamic balance and stabilization challenges. This type of training replicates the "real" aspect of sport and daily movement requirements, where cardiovascular training transfers to real-life movement. Challenging the body's oxygen delivery and utilization (VO2) capability is not only effective on the BOSU® Balance Trainer but the added elements of fun, stabilization, balance challenge and specific transfer to daily movement needs will make this type of training a favorite.
Both core stabilization and mover - or isolation - trunk conditioning can take place in a variety of positions on the BOSU® Balance Trainer. The abs work functionally in standing, kneeling, seated, sidelying, prone and supine positions and can be challenged with traditional isolation or stabilization exercises, where the goal of the exercise is to maintain a neutral and otherwise properly aligned spine. Maintaining spinal alignment is important to low back health and sports performance, as is intentionally moving into and out of "perfect" or neutral posture.
Both active and passive stretches can be taught on BOSU® Balance Trainer, with balance assistance and/or balance challenges. Active stretches use the muscles of the body to move a body part whereas passive stretching uses gravity or an outside force to put stretch-tension on the target muscle(s). While standing or kneeling on the dome, you can get an active and dynamic stretch by moving the upper body lower, higher, to the sides or by reaching for and picking up cards from various locations on the floor, or by touching and/or relocating cones that have been placed in close proximity to the dome. Stretching on the BOSU® Balance Trainer can move from a static and passive approach to a dynamic, balance challenging and active approach.
A completely unique and multidimensional training device that integrates: Core Training, Functional Sports Training, Balance Training.
Training with the BOSU® Balance Trainer creates a movement continuum from easy to incredibly challenging, from static to dynamic and from subtle balance adjustments to dramatic and highly reactive responses.
