Squat Jumps

Squat jumps can add intensity to any workout. One of my favorite saying is; ‘The more you move – the more calories you will burn – the better you will feel!’ This is also true when it comes to strength training. I wanted to feature a cardio move that is easy to incorporate into any fitness routine and Squat Jumps do just that. No equipment necessary. Do 10 to 20 squat jumps at the beginning, in the middle and at the end of your next workout or to really increase your calorie burn, you can even do a set  in between each exercise. Love squat jumps because you can always make them more challenging by doing the jumps on a step or a Bosu. Be sure to watch for video for the all the details about squat jumps just CLICK HERE!

MM - CardioMountain Climbers

I love exercises that require no equipment! You may remember these from your high school Phys Ed class – I sure do! Mountain Climbers are a fantastic way to burn lots of calories and increase your cardiovascular endurance. Keep them simple by starting with your hands on a step, bench or other stable surface, the higher the surface the easier the move. If you are an advanced exerciser; make it a challenge by performing these with 343 - Mountain Climbersyour hands on a Bosu or medicine ball. Either way be sure to use the proper form so you get the most out of each repetition! CLICK HERE for all the details!

Row on a Bosu

Did you know that the word BOSU is an acronym that stands for ‘BOth Sides Up!’ As you can see in this exercise we are using the flat side which is a great way to really challenge your core muscles. Performing a bent over Row works your core even 132 - Row on Bosuharder because of the position of your body! The next time you workout – grab a BOSU and change up your back exercise to this Row! If you are new to exercise be sure you can perform the Row correctly on the floor first, then on the round side of the BOSU and finally on the flat side! CLICK HERE for all the details!

Chest Press on a Bosu:

This is a fun variation of the standard chest press and it does so much more. By using the Bosu you are challenging your abdominal muscles and your core, and then by simply raising one leg off the floor you are also incorporating an element of balance. This is an advanced exercise so follow this progression if you are a beginner or new to exercise:

  • Perform chest press on the floor
  • Perform chest press on the Bosu w/ both feet on the floor
  • Perform chest press w/ 1 leg raised

Row w/ low cable & Bosu

Using a low cable to perform a row is a great way to perfect your posture and strengthen the largest muscles in your back – the lats or Latissimus Dorsi! I love using the Bosu to not only challenge balance & coordination but also to strengthen your core! No cable – No worries; you can perform this exercise at home using a tube o146 - Low Cable Row w/ Bosur a band attached to a stable object at ankle height. Remember it is easier to keep your balance on the Bosu when you contract your abs and find a spot to focus on!  CLICK HERE for all the details!

Triceps Overhead Extensions

Show ’em off Arms … in sleeveless shirts, tank tops and cute summer dresses! ‘Trouble Spot’, your triceps; the back of your arms can be a challenging area to tone. Overhead Extensions are great because by holding 1 dumbbell in both hands it is easier to keep your arms in the proper alignment allowing you to get the most benefit out of each repetition. The good news is this in turn leads to quicker toning of that tough area. Start slowly, when kneeling on a Bosu keep your toes on the floor for added stability or if you are an advanced exerciser make it a challenge by standing on the Bosu! Work up to 3 sets of 10 to 12 repetitions. An easy way to select the appropriate weight is to double the weight of your standard kickbacks! CLICK HERE for all the details!
