Instructions: How To

Leg Crossover Planks on a BOSU Balance Trainer intensify the traditional plank by adding leg movements that cross over the body, targeting the obliques, abdominals, and lower back. The balance trainer's instability requires greater core engagement, improving overall stability and strength.

  1. Stand behind the Balance Trainer in a platform side up position.
  2. Place the hands on the platform handles and step back into plank position.
  3. Pull one knee in toward the chest and across the body toward the opposite elbow.
  4. Alternate legs with each crossover knee pull.
  5. Keep the core braced throughout the exercise.
