Thanks for joining us today for the Runners’ Roundup. Each Wednesday, you will find posts for all things running and fitness. I am a big fan of strength training for runners and today, I am sharing my go to Full Body Bosu Workout. This workout can be done with or without weights depending on your comfort level with the Bosu.
Full Body Bosu Workout For Runners
The Bosu literally means “both sides up” meaning you can use it on either or both sides. I find it to be a great addition to my home gym because it is so versatile. The exercises you can do with it are literally endless. So, let’s get to it!
Perform each circuit through and repeat one or two times more. Again, if you are new to Bosu, I would suggest starting without weights. Otherwise, I suggest using medium weights (whatever that means for you).
Warm up with “hop overs ” for 30 seconds. Step over across the Bosu and back. Can be low impact or more of a hop.
Side Lunge with a press up x 15 each side
Squat with a bicep curl x 15
Dead Lifts x 15
Decline push ups (feet on Bosu) x 10
One legged bridges x 15 each side
Crunches x 15
Bird Dogs x 15 each leg
Plank with Bosu other side up 30 seconds (Spiderman legs optional add on)
