The third BOSU exercise video gives a quick
sample of a way to get a good cardio workout. Just make sure that you have the
balance and agility required to avoid injury. Be extra careful as you begin to fatigue,
because the BOSU adds a whole new dimension to your exercise program. As always, check
with your healthcare provider before attempting to use a BOSU, to make sure its use is
appropriate for you.
The half dome of the Bosu also makes it a good
exercise tool for stretching out the flexor side of your body: pecs, abs and hip flexors just by lying
backwards over the domed side and relaxing. This can also be a position to relieve back pain, depending on your symptoms.
Check with your healthcare practitioner before
attempting to use a BOSU ball to make sure that it is appropriate for you.
You can use the BOSU to work your abs, core muscles,
balance, flexibility, strength power,cardiovascular and nervous
systems as well as improving your mental focus. So get a BOSU and get on the ball.

Don't confuse the BOSU "half dome" with the BOSU Ballast Ball Pro made by the same company. The BOSU Ballast Ball
Pro is a full ball that has ballast or weight built into the ball.The advantage over a regular exercise ball is that the ballast helps it stay in place
better. The Ballast Ball Pro is more expensive than a regular exercise or stability ball, but is well
made. BOSU Ballast Balls can be seen in the background on the videos above.
