Walk into almost any gym and you have probably seen a stack of blue dome-shaped gadgets, better known as the BOSU (Both Sides Up) Trainer. This interesting piece of equipment allows you to use both sides for working on balance and proprioception while doing your strength training workouts. They have become a favorite with personal trainers as they help one to engage his/her core while performing strength training and balance workouts.
If you do not belong to a gym, you may want to consider adding the BOSU Trainer to your home gym inventory. For just around $100, you can include versatility and a higher degree of challenge to your workouts, all in the comforts of your own home.
