Workout move of the week: The wobbly push-up

Full disclosure: I got this workout move from Kelly Osbourne (I KNOW).

But I couldn’t resist sharing it here, because it’s a killer, and is so simple! It’s called the wobbly push-up, and involves placing a Body Bar on top of a BOSU (blue side up); getting into push-up position with your hands grasping the bar; and doing a push-up, trying to avoid emptying the contents of your stomach and/or falling sideways on your face while you do so.

The move was outlined in a SHAPE magazine feature a few months ago, and I’ve been doing it and adapting it (try lifting one leg and adding a tuck for five reps) ever since.

Have you found a workout move that kicks your butt in the best way possible? Share it here by posting a comment below.

Stay tuned for stories about my most recent run with my new running group, and about my new workout obsession, TRX!

  5. Thanks for sharing – I tried the wobbly push up this morning (just happen to have all the equipment right in front of me). I’m pretty sure I’ll feel it tomorrow 🙂
