Bosu Ball: Push Ups

I came upon an owner's manual for the Bosu Ball, designed by David Weck, and the next series of post will have information from that manual. For more information, see It is always great to get off a plateau, and the Bosu ball may be ideal for exercising balance, which we usually do not concentrate on, and strength.

Put the cured part of the ball on the floor. Have your hand grasp the handles. perform a push up. Then straighten your arms and come back to starting position. then tilt the Bosu Ball to one side, allowing the body to tilt. If you bend your knees to the floor, the exercise is easier. Try to do 10 repetitions. Work your way up for four sets of 10 repetitions.

My third book, Pocket Guide to Fitness, is available on,, and If you look up my name on those Web sites, you will find my other books The Boy in a Wheelchair and Life, Work and Play: Poems and Short Stories.
