Power Workout with Bosu Ball - Recap

RSS

Welcome to the recap of our new series Power with the Bosu Ball! With my golf fitness classes you can improve your golf game and increase your fitness level! For this series we are using a weighted power ball and a balance Bosu ball. The weighted ball is 4 pounds and compact to hold in the palm of your hand. Its gel like shell allows you to grip the ball using an isometric method which helps to increase strength in the hands and forearms. This increases better club control! When you incorporate the Bosu balance ball into your workouts, you improve balance, flexibility and coordination for your golf swing by calling on the core muscles of the body. Both can be purchased in the Pro Shop.
 
Take these simple steps before beginning:
 
Step 1: To determine your current fitness level, take the Fitness Analyzer at KellyBlackburn.com
Step 2: Print a copy of the training log.
Step 3: Each week you will have a new exercise. This is a progressive workout which means that every week you will perform the new exercise along with the exercise from weeks prior.
Step 4: Perform the workout 2-3 times a week for maximum results!
 
Here are the benefits you can receive from this series:
 
1. Improve balance
2. Increase flexibility
3. Improve coordination
4. Strengthen core muscles: abdominal, mid and lower back muscles
 
Increase core strength, balance and power behind the ball. BOSU Balance Trainer helps to strengthen and coordinate your body including the muscles that you don't see. BOSU Balance Trainer targets the core muscles of your body'those muscles around your abdominal and back area.
