What does the acronym BOSU stand for?
Invented by David Weck, the BOSU® Balance Trainer debuted in 2000 and quickly became one of the most successful fitness training products in the world. Originally, the name “BOSU” was an acronym for “Both Sides Up.” It meant that the BOSU® Balance Trainer could be used on either side, the dome or the platform.
Is BOSU ball good for core?
The unstable characteristics of the BOSU ball make it a great training tool for targeting stabilizer muscles, especially those of the core. You can take a traditional, stable move, like the squat, and make it more challenging with the BOSU because you now have to balance on an uneven surface.
