Stretching Shoulders Exercises with Bosu
The shoulder is the most movable joint in the body. However, it is an unstable joint because of the range of motion allowed. This instability increases the likelihood of joint injury, often leading to a degenerative process in which tissues break down and no longer function well.
Strengthen your shoulder muscles and reduce the change of injury (such as the rotator cuff) with the exercises found below.
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 shoulder dislocate on the Bosu is an excellent warm-up exercise with a little balance thrown in for fun!
