Trainer’s Tips

  • Contract your glutes at the top of the movement.
  • Avoid having your base foot too far out in front of you. Keep it underneath your knee throughout the exercise.
  • Don't let the heel of your working foot come off the Bosu. Keep it pressed firmly into the ball throughout the exercise.
