The BOSU Balance
Trainer can help strengthen and coordinate the entire musculature, including the
muscles of your body that you don't see. A chain is only as strong as its
weakest link. The human body is no different. Muscular imbalance or inadequacy
of even the smallest muscle can cause the entire system to fail. There are 640
individually named skeletal muscles in the body. Yet we as athletes and fitness
enthusiasts tend to conceptualize training (especially weight training) as
specifically targeting only the large "prime mover" muscles.
The BOSU also activates the stabilizer muscles key to balance, performance and
power production. Losing your balance, even for a split second, means a loss of
functional strength while your mind/body focuses on the number one priority,
regaining balance. Any interuptions to balance also break the chain of force
production and skilled movement.
The good news is that balance, like any other skill, is highly trainable. No
matter what level you are starting from, you will see and you will feel the
difference that improved balance makes. One of the reasons BOSU is so effective
is that it allows you to find your "point of challenge" safely and then begin to
improve your capabilities from that "point". We have integrated BOSU into our
sport balance program, into our multijoint dumbbell lifts, strength tubing
exercises, quickness and footwork drills, core workouts, aerobic fitness
classes, and rehab exercises. It's versatility helps balance become a part of
all parts of your training.
