Video Text - BOSU ball Squats with Rotation


The name of this exercise is called BOSU ball squats with rotation. This will work your hamstrings, your quads, your gluteals as well as standing balance and foot/ankle stabilization. Here’s my client Mark and he’s going to perform the exercise while I’ll explain it.

So, I’m going to have Mark step up onto the BOSU and he’s feet will be shoulder width apart or maybe a little more narrow and then from here, he’s going to flex his hips back, squat, pausing at the bottom and he’s going to rotate to one side aiming his hand to his foot and then back to the center and back up again. Then he will repeat it on the other side.

Now, to regress this exercise, all Mark’s going to do is place one foot on the floor and the other foot on the BOSU, squat and rotate to one side as before and twist to the side that has the foot on the BOSU. He will stay on this side and perform 8-12 reps then he will switch sides.

Now, to progress this exercise, I’m going to have Mark stand back up on the BOSU again and I’m gong to hand Mark a weight or if you have a fitness ball and perform the exercise from here. Then repeat on the other side. Very good.
