Balance and Focus

Sunday, October 23, 2011

Just working to find new exercises that are efficient, hit many areas, and cut down on the time needed to get my workout in.

    Ha! I like your title! That's great! I do balance exercises with kettlebells, too, but haven't yet tried them on a bosu. You're ahead of me!

    A lot of people neglect balance exercises when they train, but they are really important for increasing over all core strength.

Great video !

    It's basic balance and stabilization. I just started with rocker boards and wobble boards doing my upper body and lower body exercises.

I saw that BOSU and gave it a try. Over the next few months I did about 30 mins per day and keep coming up with new things to challenge me.

    How long did you have to practice that?

    Nice balance! I think I would fall off!

Great job on the Vlog. Maybe you could have a new career and be the next Jack LaLain!

    Wow! That looks like a great exercise! I've got a BOSU...just taking up room in the garage! I need to get it out! Hmmm...thanks for the inspiration!

And, I'm used to the 'much younger' photo of you. Nice to see a more up to date version of you! Thanks for sharing the VLOG!

Oh...and I'm curious about your background photo....what's that all about? very interesting!

    I have to take my hat off to my two favorite Vloggers. FIT-WHIT and MOSTMOM1.

It was FIT-WHIT that inspired me to Vlog.
MOSTMOM1 has skills that are freakish, she really challenged me to test my skills and start working on my Mac.

I love them both.

Please visit their Vlogs and Blogs.

    AWESOME, Gary! You crack me up: "Starring: Old Man- No Diaper"!! LOL! So silly. Looks like some great balance/strength exercises that you're doing! Not sure I'd be able to do them myself. Is that space at your gym, or your home-gym area? Looks like a great place to workout. :)
