Killer Stomach Exercises on 2 Bosu Balls
Learn the Most Effective Stomach Exercises
You can use a Bosu Ball to perform many killer stomach exercises!
If you've been getting bored with regular planks on the floor, then try spicing up your stomach workout by adding the Bosu Ball (or 2) to the plank exercise.
Core training is a popular fitness philosophy, and when you exercise on an unstable surface your stomach muscles and core muscles work harder to keep your body in good alignment.
Working out should be fun, so try this fun and challenging stomach exercise. But also remember to listen to your body, and build up your strength slowly if you are a beginner by mastering the regular plank on the floor.
Planks on 2 Bosu Balls
The plank is an isometric exercise, which means that you simply hold one position for 10-60 seconds.
Killer Stomach Exercises #1: Plank from the Hands
Starting Position: Begin by placing your hands on top of the Bosu Ball and also place your feet on top of a Bosu Ball. Keep your body in a straight line and engage your abs and core muscles.
Form: While keeping your stomach muscles engaged, keep your spine in good alignment and simply hold the starting position for 10-60 seconds and then rest.
Personal Trainer Tips: Make sure you keep your head and neck in good alignment. Don't allow your forehead to move towards the ceiling.
Also, make sure that your wrists, elbows, and shoulders are stacked in a straight line on top of the Bosu Ball.
If your wrists are sore when your hands are on the Bosu Ball, try the version below from the elbows.
Killer Stomach Exercises #2: Planks form the Elbows
Starting Position: Begin this exercise in the same position as the isometric variation above, except hold from your elbows instead of your hands.
Form: While keeping your stomach muscles engaged, hold your body in a straight line for 10-60 seconds.
Personal Trainer Tips: Remember to build up your strength by mastering the regular floor plank first.
Then progress by using 1 Bosu Ball for planks. Once you master 1 Bosu Ball, then try using 2 at the same time.
The plank is a great stomach exercise, but when you add an extra stability challenge you skyrocket the amount of work your stomach muscles have to do to keep your body stable.
