Side bosu step with lateral raise

STRENGTH

Preparation:

  1. Begin with a thorough dynamic warm up before starting this exercise; this engages the nervous system.
  2. Allow the body to rhythmically flow throughout this movement.

 

How to Do:

  1. Begin a comfortable stride length away from the BOSU.
  2. Perform a sideways step up (as shown).
  3. The idea is to generate initial momentum with the legs upon stepping up and carrying this momentum into the shoulder raise (as shown).
  4. Pay close attention to the accompanying video to observe the timing of this movement.
  5. Slowly step down and repeat the desired number of reps.
  6. This exercise is very demanding metabolically and will fatigue you quickly. Make sure that you keep the repetition slow to start.
