Exercise of the Week: BOSU Squats

December 19, 2011

This week’s Exercise of the Week is one I mentioned earlier in Fitness Toys Galore. The BOSU Squat. I believe this can be a great exercise, but you have to perfect your squat form on flat ground before moving to this surface modality. I think the biggest problem I find with this exercise is when people can’t squat properly first, but think they can do this. Learn to control your knees with regular squats and then make the move to this!

Notice how her knees do not come forward past her toes. Many people I see doing this exercise have the weight on their toes and then are falling forward on the BOSU.. I think this is a great exercise to throw a little change into the workout 🙂
