The BOSU ball is right up there with my favourite pieces of equipment, but due to its kind-of-annoying size and shape I don’t get to pull it out and play with it very often (seriously, try squeezing it plus kettlebells, mats, medicine balls and battle ropes into the boot of your car sometime).
When I do take the time to pull it out of my storage container though, I’m always reminded how simple it is to use it to put together a workout that exhausts your entire body in a short period of time. And because it’s an unstable surface, every single exercise you do on the BOSU requires you to switch on your core too… so you can say hello to burning abdominals.

It may not be super car-boot-friendly, but if you’ve got a home gym and you’re looking to challenge yourself, one of these bad boys would be a good addition. Trust me; throw a BOSU ball workout into the mix every now and then and your body will feel the difference.
The BOSU is an unstable surface so it’s definitely not for everyone, and I’d recommend that the first time you use one you do it with an experienced trainer.
