Exercise of The Week - Front arm raise on Bosu

Front arm raises can improve the overall shape of your shoulders by training the muscles in the front of your shoulders called the deltoids. Strong deltoids make lifting objects and reaching forward much easier to do. Performing this move on a Bosu Ball engages your core muscles and will also help to protect your back, by preventing you from leaning backwards as your raise your arms.

1 . Hold a dumbbell in each hand in front of your thighs, both palms facing your body, elbows slightly bent. Place your knees hip width apart on a Bosu Trainer. Lift your feet off the floor and tighten your abdominals.


2.       Slowly raise your arms in front of you until the dumbbells are at shoulder level while maintaining your balance on the Bosu ball. Pause at the top with your arms parallel to the floor. With control, lower the dumbbells down your thighs. Repeat 12-15 times. Rest for 15 seconds and repeat for a total of 3 sets.
