It’s been soooooooooo long since I’ve busted out my BOSU, and you can’t even imagine how much I’ve missed it! The BOSU used to be a very regular piece of equipment in my rotation, and then…
Well, I’m not really sure what happened, to be honest. I still care about balance work, I still enjoy working on unstable surfaces, and I definitely still need to work on the BOSU.
I suspect that I haven’t made a BOSU video in a while for two reasons:
- Not everybody has one.
- Workouts that are “good for you” aren’t always very popular.
That second thing is hard for me. As you probably know, I consider it my personal mission in life to deliver workouts you need, not just workouts you want.
So here’s a dose of character-building sweat!
