Hamstring Exercises with Bosu
The hamstrings play a crucial role in many daily activities, such as, running, jumping, walking and cycling. Strengthening your hamstring muscles help to protect your knees from injury by absorbing the stress placed on the knee. Weak hamstrings can lead to knee injury.
The BOSU balance trainer stands for "Both Sides Utilized" and is most often used for balance training, various athletic drills and aerobic activities.
When the dome side is up, the BOSU provides an unstable surface while the device remains stable. This combination of stable/unstable allows a wide range of users, from the young, elderly, or injured to the elite level athlete.
As the name suggests, the device can also be flipped over so that the platform faces up. In this position, the device becomes highly unstable and can be used for a wide array of challenging balance exercises.
The Bosu single leg glute bridge is an intermediate lower body exercise. This exercise targets the buttocks and hamstrings and is suitable for intermediate to advanced fitness levels.
