10 Things To Do With A Bosu Ball…

bosu_mediasquare

It’s interesting when I see a new person walk into the gym.  It can be painfully obvious if it’s their first time in a gym, EVER. They usually will walk around and timidly look at the machines, hoping to find one that they’ve seen somewhere before.  They’ll get on it or in it, and if they’re lucky, there’ll be a little graphic placard that tries to illustrate the movement and the muscles involved.

Unfortunately, most first timers have a difficult time trying to figure out from these hieroglyphics, just how to correctly perform the exercise.  It’s at this point that I’m hoping they will have the courage to ask for some assistance.  I learned a long time ago not to volunteer to show someone how to do an exercise without being asked. Let’s just say some people’s pride is more important than risking an injury…

Now, when it comes to the Bosu Ball, we’re at a whole new level!  It’s one of those mysterious pieces of equipment that most people tend to ignore.  That’s too bad, because it really is a versatile training tool that can be used in so many different ways.  Here are 10 exercises that you can do with the Bosu Ball that will target your chest, triceps, hips, legs, glutes and core. How’s THAT for versatile?

So now, go have yourselves a ball!  A Bosu Ball!

Stay Fit Forever!

Hummus Deconstruct – Video Recipe

hummus

OK,

Today we take traditional hummus and do a little tweaking to make it a whole lot healthier for our purposes while keeping a creamy texture and tangy flavor.

The recipe calls for:

1 – can Garbanzo beans/Chick Peas, drained and rinsed
2 – Tbsp. Olive Oil
6 – Tbsp. Lemon or Lime Juice
2 – Tbsp. Chia Seeds (left to soak in 6 oz. water for 10 min.)

Season with:
Garlic Powder
Mrs. Dash
Cayenne Pepper

By using the chia seeds, we’ve effectively reduced the fat content of the recipe by 26 grams, or basically 240 calories… ALL FROM FAT!!

Plus we’ve added Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s as well as an additional 4 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber in just TWO TABLESPOONS of this stuff!

Try it out and let me know what you think.
