    Has anyone done the Bosu Workout? I started Monday (7/14) and eventhough I did nothing yesterday, my legs are still sore.

    I'm trying to come up with a plan that will allow me to do, at least, half of the workouts in any given day. Maybe something like:

    Day 1,3,5:
    Push ups/Plank superset - 3 sets
    Dumbbell squats - 3 sets
    Dumbbell Bicep Curls/Side Plank superset - 3 sets
    Alt. Prisoner Lunges - 3 sets

    Just that much (plus a warm up and cool down walk or cycle) took an hour on Monday and I wasn't wasting any time. I only have an hour for lunch and thought I could finish all of the workout in the time alloted. (Boy, was I wrong.)

    I'm wondering what cardio I could do in between the days and how many weeks to do this. Or if I should incorporate the other exercizes during the same week instead of splitting them into a separate week.

    so for my second day of this... I was able to all but the last superset of the entire workout in one hour. I almost quit, but I put a plastic smile on my face during the popovers and pushed through. Now I want chocolate.

    go for the chocolate ...you deserve it!

    My personal trainer uses the bosu ball in my workouts. It was one of the first pieces of equipment I used when he was redeveloping my ability to stand and balance myself.

    I have done pushups on the bosu ball...squats, squats with dumbell presses up over my head, one-legged squats with toe-touching.

    The bosu ball is a great piece of equipment.

    Thanks guys,

    It's rough going and I've already had to alter the leg exersizes for my level of fitness. It's one thing to know that I don't need a lot of squats and lunges to have nice legs and a nice ass (that's a given) but to know that I don't yet have the strength to do a full 20 reps of those killer lunges is discomforting.

    I'll get there.
