Exercise With A Bosu

Bump It Up a Notch With the BOSU Burpee

Just when you thought burpees couldn't get any better, we're here to show you a new variation using one of our favorite fitness tools, the BOSU. Check out this variation of the classic exercise from Equinox trainer Lauren Fairbanks. Adding a little instability to the push-up forces the core to work more, as does lifting the unwieldy BOSU overhead. To work the middle even more, Lauren adds in a twist after the push-up. Feel your heart rate rise as you challenge every body part with this move.

1. Come into a deep squat holding the BOSU at chest level.

2. Place the ball side of the BOSU on the ground, then jump or walk your legs back to a plank position.

Learn how to do the rest of the exercise.

3. With your hands flat on the top of the BOSU, do one push-up.

4. Add a twist! Lift your right leg, bringing the right knee toward the left elbow, then repeat on the other side.

5. Jump or walk your feet forward, coming into a deep squat.

6. Stand and lift the BOSU overhead, staying strong in your core to prevent arching your back.

Ten to 12 reps make a set; do two to three sets.
