I haven’t worked out with my trainer Justin at Rich Barretta Private Training in a few months. I miss him. So much so that I forced myself to torture push myself and do his bosu ball routine. The bosu workout is a specialty of Justin’s. I don’t know anyone else who does it and it’s the only work out that’s really toned my legs and thighs. The instability of the bosu ball (or fear of falling) forces me to stabilize my core. That’s what I love about this workout. Not only do I tone my legs, butt, and thighs but I get a good core work out without having to do a single crunch. (I still do crunches, btw.)

Justin usually had me perform all sorts of calisthenics and acrobatics on the bosu. Imagine doing squats and kicks, bicep curls, concentrating on form, trying not to fall off…all at the same time. I highly recommend you try this with Justin. It’s not only fun, but it’ll push your body in a unique way.

Lastly, aren’t these Nike Pro Core Compression Pants crazy fun? Thanks to my friend Bri!

  • You are absolutely rockin’ that bosu ball – amazing balance! And those pants are great! Wish I could pull those off.

    • Lisa- if I can wear these pants so can you! It took a minute to get used to 🙂

  • Dang girl, you’ve got some skill to be able to balance and take photos! I have never tried a bosu ball before, but I need to sometime for a challenge because it looks tough.

    • Anastasia- it took a few tries to get the photos. I thought balancing on the bosu was hard enough but trying to be stable enough to take photos was another challenge to the work out! You must try!

  • Hey ladies,

    I appreciate you giving Justin props…he an amazing trainer!
    I should know since I taught him 🙂
    Truth is, I’m the one that decided to flip the bosu over years ago and developed the moves that make ladies butts and legs look insane! The bosu is just a small part of our repertoire for sculpting amazing bodies. Happy you’re enjoying the results!
