Happy Friday! Let’s kick it off with a five-part list dedicated to my most recent love: the Bosu Ball. Not only is this half-flat, half-round inflatable an excellent core strength builder, but it’s also a fun source of unstable entertainment.
Here are my top five favorite Bosu ball exercises. Try them out!
1. The medicine ball wood chop (you can also do this with a machine)2. Plank3. Squat (ideally you could go lower than me!)4. Russian twist5. Single leg bridgeI’m convinced that regular core work (including these exercises) has helped me become a stronger, less injury-prone runner.
Hopefully my star photos were informative — if not, check out the videos I linked! (I would create videos for you, but I’m definitely not that camera-ready yet).
The real star of this post is actually these Greek mini meatloaves that we made last night.We followed this Cooking Light recipe, and it was delicious. The mini loaves (aka meatballs cooked in a muffin tin) are a mix of lamb and beef, and the “tzatziki” sauce is made of yogurt. Our only criticism is that this recipe is not “quick and easy” like it suggests. It took us over an hour to prepare all the sauces and mix the meat up! Good thing we had Anthony, my dad, my mom, and myself all working together to form the feast. What a team.
Have a great weekend!
- Have you ever eaten lamb?
- How long do you usually spend making dinner?
- Do you ever do Bosu ball exercises?
