Jess’ Favourite Things, Dec 19: BOSU!

Duh! This is my very favourite fitness-related thing. The Bosu is my favourite fitness toy / tool.

Not only are we all pressed for time, but we really want to be efficient in our workouts. That means more movement, more muscle groups involved in less time. Better results. Cardiovascular combined with strength. So, I’ve provided you with an exercise that will train delts (shoulders), biceps, core, quads and glutes (lower body) – and even recruit the stabilizers in the inner and outer thighs.
