Just before the turn of the 21st century in 1999 a man named David Weck invented the BOSU ball and functional fitness has never been the same since. From his designed an entire industry of proprioceptive devices spawned. Gyms, clubs, athletic training centers and physical rehab facilities far and wide sport BOSU balls today.

Overcoming Obstacles & Setting Trends

A decade later a study came out that tried to discredit the BOSU ball, claiming it provided no additional benefit to users vs. just performing the same exercises on flat ground. Here’s the deal, if you’ve ever used one you know that simply can’t be true. When you first stand on top of a BOSU ball with both feet, most people begin to shake and teeter. Add in some dynamic exercises or extra weight and the lower body, along with the lumbo-pelvic hip complex are heavily engaged.

Furthermore, here’s a snippet from the BOSU Wikipedia page:

“The BOSU is an official sponsor of the US Ski Team Professional teams and athletes, such as the US Ski Team, have incorporated BOSU Training to improve agility, speed, and overall athletic performance”

Do you know what BOSU stands for? It stands for “Both Sides Up” or “Both Sides Utilized” which goes along with their fitness perspective that focuses on body control and alternating bilateral coordination. Here’s how they describe the two core fundamentals of BOSU training:

1. Through balancing both left and right sides or hemisphere of the body, you force the central nervous system to control through symmetrical rotation.

2. Athletes can use a timing-efficient down/up movement that allows them to harness the Load to Explode exchange with their entire body in a powerful and effective way.

“Improving these two fundamental capabilities fortifies the foundation for enhanced performance in all movement, sports, and life. This harmony and balance you create in your body and your brain is called the BOSU Effect”
