1. Toe taps

Lift your knees high while alternating touching the Bosu ball with the tip of your foot.

2. Squat jumps

Start in a side lunge position, and whilst balancing one foot on the Bosu ball and one foot on the floor, push off the ground to move the foot on the ground onto the ball whilst the foot on the ball moves onto the other side of the ball onto the floor. Keep alternating legs.

3. Burpees

Holding the Bosu ball upside down in the straight arm plank position, move your legs to a tucked position, do a standing squat whilst holding the ball. Stand-up and lift the ball above your head. Move the Bosu ball back down to the straight arm plank position, and add a push-up if you’re feeling a challenge! Then repeat.

4. and for an extra challenge… Bosu push-ups!

Grip your fingers on the edge of the Bosu ball upside down. Bend your elbows to lower your entire body into a push-up position, pushing your hand’s weight evenly into the ball. On the way up, push your entire body upwards whilst pulling the ball closer to your body, then land the Bosu ball back on the floor with bent arms and lower back into the push-up position. And repeat!
