EP 199: Superman on the Bosu
Superman on the Bosu is a variation of the original Pilates exercise “Breaststroke” and other prone Pilates exercises. Performing this exercise on the Bosu adds instability, which forces the deep stabilizers of the spine – the core muscles – to contract. Because the exercise begins in slight lumbar (lower back) flexion, Superman on the Bosu focuses on the extensors of the thoracic spine (upper back) and should not create tension in the lower back. You’ll tone the muscles of the upper back and improve your posture!
